Famous quotes containing the words blaise pascal, university and/or pascal:

    The present is never our end. The past and present are our means; the future alone is our end. So we never live, but hope to live; and, as we are always preparing to be happy, it is inevitable that we should never be so.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labour. You must in some way or other graft upon the man’s nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine.
    William Booth (1829–1912)

    It is natural for the mind to believe and for the will to love; so that, for want of true objects, they must attach themselves to false.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
