Pascal, Blaise (1623-1662)
We are so presumptuous that we should like to be known all over the world, even by people who will only come when we are no more. Such is our vanity that the good opinion of half a dozen of the people around us gives us pleasure and satisfaction.
Pensees. 1670.
Pascal, Blaise (1623-1662)
It is not certain that everything is uncertain.
Pensees. 1670.

Pascal, Blaise (1623-1662)
To deny, to believe, and to doubt well are to a man as the race is to a horse.

Pascal, Blaise (1623-1662)
Those who are accustomed to judge by feeling do not understand the process of reasoning, because they want to comprehend at a glance and are not used to seeking for first principles. Those, on the other hand, who are accustomed to reason from first principles do not understand matters of feeling at all, because they look for first principles and are unable to comprehend at a glance.
