FAVORITES

1. JEAN-PAUL SARTRES: "Tout a été pensé excepté comment vivre" (All has been figured out except how to live). (Reference in Sartres?)

2. VOLTAIRE complained: "PASCAL taught men to hate themselves.  In spite of him [i.e., of  Pascal's teaching], I would sooner teach them to love one another."

 

[Pascal] enseigne aux humains à se haïr eux-mêmes, Je voudrais malgré lui leur apprendre à s'aimer.
