Blaise Pascal  (1623 - 1662)

  Pascal was a mathematician, physicist, theologian, author and philosopher.  Sometimes passionately and sometimes grimly, he recognized humanity's relative smallness to the vast universe, but he observed the gift of thought in us, as well as the importance of belief in God.  He repeatedly stressed that the sick cannot heal themselves, that matter alone cannot know matter without an outside knowledge.

"Men, it is in vain that seek within yourselves the cure for your miseries.  All your intelligence can only bring you to realize that it is not within yourselves that you will find either truth or good."




"I maintain that, if everyone knew what others said about him, there would not be four friends in the world."
