Pondering Pascal


"Nature is an infinite sphere of which the center is everywhere and the circumference nowhere."

“The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble.”

"Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the infinity in which he is engulfed."

"Contradiction is not a sign of falsity, nor the lack of contradiction a sign of truth."

"I have made this letter longer than usual, because I lack the time to make it short."

~Blaise Pascal
