Daily Quotes 11/22


“All men seek to be happy; this is without exception.
Whatever different means they may employ,
they all tend to this end. This is why some go to war,
and why others do not, that both parties
have the same desire, accompanied by different views.
The will never takes the least step but towards this object.
It is the motive of all the actions of all men,
even of those who hang themselves.”

Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), French mathematician, physicist, religious philosopher. The Thoughts, Letters, and Opuscules of Blaise Pascal, p. 246.
