We know the truth, not only by the reason, but by the heart. – Blaise Pascal
This one makes me think. ” We know the truth, not only by the reason, but by the heart.” – Blaise Pascal.
Pascal was a scientist, mathematician, and philosopher. You’d expect him to be fully on the side of reason. But his experience led to something else.
It’s important to cultivate our heart, our intuition, our inner ability to hear God. That’s the main focus of learning to nurture our inner life.
The Pensees is one of Pascal’s most well know works. Not easy reading, but quite influential in western culture.
