What is Man?

“What a monster then is man! How strange and chimerical, what a chaos, what a bundle of contradictions, what a prodigy! A judge of all things, a feeble earthworm; a depository of truth, a sink of uncertainty and error, the pride and refuse of the universe.”

— Blaise Pascal, The Pensees (Penguin Books, 1961) p. 150
