    Question Twice the hope, Double the fall

    Hi,

    Twice the hope, Double the fall.

    I heard this from the film "Star War",

    Can I say like that: "Twice the hope, Twice the fall" or "Double the hope, Twice the fall"?

    Thanks.

    I'd leave it as it was.

    Why the first choice is best ?

    What's (probably) wrong if said it like 2nd or 3rd ?

    Nothing's wrong with the other versions- I just think the first sounds better.
