Earlier this semester, I studied the apologetics of Blaise Pascal, a brilliant mathematician and theologian (quite the combo!). He began writing a book entitled The Pensees but did not complete it before his death. I thought I would share a few quotes from the book.
“The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing.”
“Two excesses: to exclude reason, to admit nothing but reason.”
“Man’s greatness comes from knowing he is wretched: a tree does not know it is wretched. Thus it is wretched to know one is wretched but there is greatness in knowing one is wretched.”
“. . . there are only two classes of persons who can be called reasonable: those who serve God with all their heart because they know him, and those who seek him with all their heart because they do not know him.”
