'Pascal's Pensees--Thoughts--are notes that Pascal might have organized into a book if he had not died so early. Morris here gives us a book organized out of some of those thoughts...This is a Pascalian book filled with a passion for life and for finding the sense of life as it actually comes to us. In Pascal, and now in Morris, we can hear a philosophical voice that calls up our own deep longing and that invites us to an everlasting love.' - George I. Mavrodes, University of Michigan
