153 Blaise Pascal Quotes

Although Blaise focused mostly on mathematics, physics, and inventions in his early years, he later became a Christian philosopher with one of his most famous French writings being Apologie de la religion chrétienne (a Christian apologetics piece). With a very scientific mindset, it is quite interesting that Blaise wrote Christian pieces from an emotional side and talking about how experiencing God is through the heart, rather than the brain.
