FRANCOIS LA ROCHEFOUCAULD

Man is but a being filled with error... The senses deceive reason by false appearances; and just as they cheat reason they are cheated by her in turn: she has her revenge. Passions of the soul trouble the senses, and give them false impressions. They emulously lie and deceive each other.

Blaise Pascal

Blaise Pascal (June 19, 1623, in Clermont-Ferrand, France - August 19, 1662, in Paris) was a French mathematician, physicist, and religious philosopher. He was a child prodigy who was educated by his father, a civil servant. Pascal's earliest work was in the natural and applied sciences where he made important contributions to the construction of mechanical calculators, 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.

Pascal was a mathematician of the first order. He helped create two major new areas of research. He wrote a significant treatise on the subject of projective geometry at the age of sixteen, and later corresponded with Pierre de Fermat on probability theory, strongly influencing the development of modern economics and social science. Following Galileo and Torricelli, in 1646 he refuted Aristotle's followers who insisted that nature abhors a vacuum. His results caused many disputes before being accepted.

Why does my blood thus muster to my heart,
And dispossessing all my other parts
Of necessary fitness?"

Shakespeare

Nature hath framed strange fellows in her time;
Some that will evermore peep through their eyes,
And laugh, like parrots at a bag piper;
And other of vinegar aspect,
That they'll not show their teeth in way of smile,
Though Nestor swear the jest be laughable.

Shakespeare

So, to keep tongues from wagging,
I laugh when I'm crying, bitterly
And gaily sing when my heart is sad.

Christine De Pisan

The soul of music lumbers in the shell,
Till wak'd and kindled by the master's spell,
And feeling hearts[[ touch them but lightly[[pour
A thousand melodies unheard before.

Samuel Rogers

Man is but a being filled with error... The senses deceive reason by false appearances; and just as they cheat reason they are cheated by her in turn: she has her revenge. Passions of the soul trouble the senses, and give them false impressions. They emulously lie and deceive each other.

Pascal

But our gusty emotions say to me that we have
Tasted heaven many times: these delicacies
Are left over from some larger party.

Robert Bly

An American poet, author, activist and leader of the Mythopoetic Men's Movement in the United States

Joseph Joubert

Feeling should be held near to the heart. When you accustom your heart to love things which have only an intellectual existence, you become attached to mere abstractions, and easily sacrifice realities to them. When you have a great love for mankind in the mass, there is no affection left to distribute among individuals: all your benevolence has been spent on the universal, and the individual comes in too late. There philosophical passions, which...
