Let us endeavour then to think well; this is the principle of morality.

Toute notre dignité consiste donc en la pensée. C’est de là qu’il faut nous relever et non de l’espace et de la durée, que nous ne saurions remplir. Travaillons donc à bien penser : voilà le principe de la morale.”
Blaise Pascal - Pensées

German
Unsere ganze Würde besteht demnach in der Fähigkeit zu denken. Von da aus müssen wir gehen und nicht von Raum und Zeit, die wir doch niemals ausfüllen könnten. Arbeiten wir also daran, richtig zu denken: Das ist das Prinzip der Moral.”
