Quotes

Quotes | On

The following are quotes on Pascal:

“Pascal's fragments seems to be less a ‘thought’ than an after-thought. What to put first in his Apology for the Faith? Of course, the great man himself never completed his great book, nor even so much as a first draft of a first part or a first chapter or a preface. Indeed, he left his manuscripts in such apparent disorder that his heirs had to make their own book, selected and arranged in their own way: Thoughts of Pascal: on Religion and on Some other Subjects, Found after his Death among his Papers (1670).[1] For this first edition, they set aside the fragment on first things and last things. Eight years later, they did include it in their chapter 31 of ‘Various Thoughts’, placed arbitrarily but suggestively between their chapter 30 of apparently impersonal ‘Thoughts on Death’ extracted from Blaise's letter to his elder sister Gilberte after the death of their father [1651], Etienne, and their chapter 32, which was his intensely personal ‘Prayer to Ask God for the Good Use of Illnesses’, written in his own last years of illness.”
