    Or, being a little less dramatic, you could say it is a given. – Kate Bunting Feb 12 '19 at 13:09
  • @Kate Bunting: Yes, in many contexts the phrase "a given" would also work. But it would have to include the indefinite article, which OP might not know. As you know, we wouldn't say "It is your given" or "It was his given" or "It was the given of the ship to sink". – TRomano Feb 12 '19 at 13:11
