Over the past few months I have been struggling with the loss of a friendship. Tomorrow starts a new chapter of my life. I start a new job at a place I worked a few years ago. I shall miss the 4 legged customers, co- workers and friends I made over the past year at the Wash Spot. My heart feels a bit foggy today.
“We arrive at the truth, not by the reason only, but also by the heart.”
– Blaise Pascal
About Blaise Pascal
Blaise Pascal was not only a mathematician and philosopher, he was also an inventor, having created the hydraulic press and the syringe. He was born in France in 1623. He showed a gift for math early: At age 12, he started rediscovering Euclid’s theorems on his own. Later, spurred by a friend who liked gambling, he developed the theory of probabilities. After a life-threatening accident in 1654 he had a religious conversion, which led him to write about religious ethics and belief. He died in 1662.
