Famous quotes containing the word pascal:

    We need not have the loftiest mind to understand that here is no lasting and real satisfaction, that our pleasures are only vanity, that our evils are infinite, and, lastly, that death, which threatens us every moment, must infallibly place us within a few years under the dreadful necessity of being forever either annihilated or unhappy.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Animals do not admire each other. A horse does not admire its companion.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    The exterior must be joined to the interior to obtain anything from God, that is to say, we must kneel, pray with the lips, and so on, in order that proud man, who would not submit himself to God, may be now subject to the creature.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
