Proust: ‘Pascal’s Probabilities’ | Remembrance of Things Pass #143

PASCAL’S PROBABILITIES

“After a certain age our memories are so intertwined with one another that what we are thinking of, the book we are reading, scarcely matters any more. We have put something of ourselves everywhere, everything is fertile, everything is dangerous, and we can make discoveries no less precious than in Pascal’s Penséesin an advertisement for soap.” ― Marcel Proust
