QuotationI have just read a beautiful book by [Romano] Guardini on Pascal [Pascal for Our Time]: this same Pascal who so fascinated and repulsed Camus. Yes, there might be too much bitterness and pessimism in Pascal's solitude and yet he is so right and so acute. Also, I have reread his remarkable discourses on the passions of love. But I am the one who is too talkative.
