here, have some pascal.

351. Those great spiritual efforts, which the soul sometimes assays, are things on which it does not lay hold. It only leaps to them, not as upon a throne, for ever, but merely for an instant.

352. The strength of a man's virtue must not be measured by his efforts, but by his ordinary life.

358. Man is neither angel nor brute, and the unfortunate thing is that he who would act the angel acts the brute.


from Pascal's Pensees
