Noble and Wretched

According to scientist and philosopher, Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), human kind is both noble and wretched. Noble, because we are created in God’s image; wretched, because we are fallen and alienated from Him.

 

“What kind of freak is man? What a novelty he is, how absurd he is, how chaotic and what a mass of contradictions, and yet what a prodigy! He is judge of all things, yet a feeble worm. He is repository of truth, and yet sinks into such doubt and error. He is the glory and the scum of the universe!”
