Latest posted quotesby Blaise Pascal
Of the truths within our reach, the mind and the heart are as doors by which they are received into the soul, but few enter by the mind, whilst they are brought in crowds by the rash caprices of the will, without the council of reason.
In order to enter into a real knowledge of your condition, consider it in this image: a man was cast by a tempest upon an unknown island, the inhabitants of which were in trouble to find their king, who was lost; and having a strong resemblance both in form and face to this king, he was taken for him, and acknowledged in this capacity by all the people.
Do not mistake yourself by believing that your being has something in it more exalted than that of others.
