Famous quotes containing the word pascal:

    What a chimera then is man. What a novelty! What a monster, what a chaos, what a contradiction, what a prodigy. Judge of all things, imbecile worm of the earth; depositary of truth, a sink of uncertainty and error: the pride and refuse of the universe.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    If Montaigne is a man in the prime of life sitting in his study on a warm morning and putting down the sum of his experience in his rich, sinewy prose, then Pascal is that same man lying awake in the small hours of the night when death seems very close and every thought is heightened by the apprehension that it may be his last.
    Cyril Connolly (1903–1974)

    The knowledge of God is very far from the love of him.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
