The last thing we discover in writing a book is what to put at the beginning.”   —   Pascal

(Some versions of this quote have “to know” between the “is” and the “what”.  The idea is the same, regardless, in my opinion.  I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a book.  The funny thing is that, technically, I have started writing it, but I started by writing a kind of preface.  Maybe, that is my problem.  I should be saving that for last.  I should be listening to Pascal.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

When we see a natural style, we are astonished and charmed; for we expected to see an author, and we find a person.”   —   Blaise Pascal

(I guess you’d have to say this applies to bloggers, as well.  We are authors, of a sort.  But basically, we are just people, processing all that we see and experience, and trying to relate that back out to the world.  Some will get it and appreciate it, for others it just won’t add up.  C’ést la vie!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

If Cleopatra’s nose had been shorter, the whole face of the earth would have been different.”   —   Blaise Pascal
