Great quotes
« on: November 21, 2016, 12:18:48 PM »
All of these are from Pascal, the 17th century scientist.

"Atheism is marked by free thought, but only to an extent."

"Either Jews or Christians must be wrong."

"There are 2 kinds of people: sinners who consider themselves just and just who consider themselves sinners."

"Evil is easy, there are inifinitely many kinds of it; good is almost unique; but a certain kind of evil is almost as hard to find as what is called good, and for that reason this particular evil is often considered good."

"Out of all the bodies put together you can't get a tiniest thought: that's impossible, it's a different domain. Out of all the bodies and minds put together you can't get a twitch of true love: that's impossible, it's a different domain, supernatural."

"Either Jews or Christians must be wrong". Nowadays, Pascal accused from liberals for anti-semitism, denial of Holocaust etc.

About Slaves and slavery

"...and he who would be no slave, must consent to have no slave. Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it...."
                                                                                         ( Freemason US Senator Abraham Lincoln 1959. )

http://www.abrahamlincolnonline.org/lincoln/speeches/pierce.htm

“None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.”
                                                                         ( Freemason ? German writer Johann W. von Goethe 1809 )

this is from Leonardo da Vinci's notes

"The man becomes happy who follows Christ. There is no perfect gift
without great suffering. Our glories and our triumphs pass away.
Foul lust, and dreams, and luxury, and sloth have banished every
virtue from the world; so that our Nature, wandering and perplexed,
has almost lost the old and better track."

“When the truth is replaced by silence,” said the Soviet dissident poet Yevtushenko, “the silence is a lie.”
