Four quotes by Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623 – August 19, 1662), was a French mathematician, physicist, inventor, writer and Catholic philosopher. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a Tax Collector in Rouen. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences where he made important contributions to the study of fluids, and clarified the concepts of pressure and vacuum by generalizing the work of Evangelista Torricelli. Pascal also wrote in defense of the scientific method.
 I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time. 
Je n'ai fait celle-ci plus longue que parce que je n'ai pas eu le loisir de la faire plus courte.
 It is rare that mathematicians are intuitive, and that men of intuition are mathematicians. 
 People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive. 
 True morality makes fun of morality.
