Nobody wrote better than Blaise Pascal.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Pensees (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
A great physicist, mathematician, writer and theologist, Pascal was also the inventor, and builder, of the first calculating machine. Pensees is of a rarely attained beauty. To reach its equal you must go to the very best poetry.To wit: "Le silence eternel de ces espaces infinies m'effraie", that is, the eternal silence of these infinite spaces frightens me. The rest is silence, as his equally talented fellow said.
