Quote of the Day (Blaise Pascal, on the ‘Greatness and Wretchedness of Man’)

“The greatness and the wretchedness of man are so evident that the true religion must necessarily teach us both that there is in man some great source of greatness and a great source of wretchedness. It must then give us a reason for these astonishing contradictions.”— Blaise Pascal, Pensees, translated by W. F. Trotter (1670)
