Ethics

Consider the following pithy statements from philosopher Blaise Pascal

"If we examine our thoughts, we shall find them always occupied with the past and the future."                                       

"Man's greatness lies in the power of thought."

"Reason commands us far more imperiously than a master; for in disobeying the one we are unfortunate, and in disobeying the other we are fools.

"People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive."

~ Sunset at Big Bend National Park
