Spiritual Quote of the Day (Blaise Pascal, on Grace)

"In the Christian religion, we find attributed to man, neither a debasement which renders him incapable of excellence, nor a holiness exempt from imperfection. No doctrine can be more suitable for man, than that which informs him of his twofold capability of receiving and losing grace, on account of the two extremes into which he is always in danger of falling—despair and pride.” —French philosopher, mathematician and logician Blaise Pascal (1623–1662), Pensees, translated by Isaac Taylor (1670)
