Famous quotes containing the word pascal:

    Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without passions, without business, without diversion, without study. He then feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his dependence, his weakness, his emptiness. There will immediately rise from the depth of his heart weariness, gloom, sadness, fretfulness, vexation, despair.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    Man finds nothing so intolerable as to be in a state of complete rest, without passions, without occupation, without diversion, without effort. Then he feels his nullity, loneliness, inadequacy, dependence, helplessness, emptiness.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    We never love a person, but only qualities.
    —Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)
