A quotation for today

Blaise Pascal (1623 - 1662)

Let us weigh the gain and the loss in wagering that God is. Let us consider the two possibilities. If you gain, you gain all; if you lose, you lose nothing. Hesitate not, then, to wager that He is.

Pensees (1670)

Another quotation by one of today's mathematicians
