Portrait of Pascal

Le cœur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît pas.” Blaise Pascal

French mathematician, physicist (1623 – 1662)

Translation: “The heart has its reasons which reason does not know”

Meaning: “We do things for love that we would normally Never consider doing.”

This has proven true in my life.


Calvin and HobbesCalvin: I wonder where we go when we die.
Hobbes: Pittsburgh?
Calvin: You mean if we’re good or if we’re bad?

Calvin and Hobbes has always been a favorite.

I had a shirt made once in San Diego. 1993 I think. With Calvin and Hobbes fighting.

And the quote “Anything I ever let go of had claw marks all over it.”

Then there was this.

“I have to confess, I was born a Republican, but you have to have been a Republican to realize how nice it is to be a Democrat.”

Jackie Kennedy

How true I have found this to be in my life so far.

How very true.

Dum vivimus, vivamus! (while we live, let us live!)

All due respects to my high school Latin teacher.

I’ve not read Jane Austen. Someone suggested I’d like it. Leaning toward reading Emma actually. Although Pride and Prejudice is quite popular.

And now from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice two quotes …

“Think only of the past as its remembrance gives you pleasure”

Nice concept.

“I am even happier than Jane. She only smiles. I laugh.”


Maybe I should read Pride and Prejudice after all.
