Blaise Pascal

(French, German)


French
Le monde est si inquiet, qu'on ne pense presque jamais à la vie présente et à l'instant où l'on vit; mais à celui où l'on vivra. De sorte qu'on est toujours en état de vivre à l'avenir, et jamais de vivre maintenant.”
Blaise Pascal

German
Die Welt ist so unruhig, daß man fast nie an das gegenwärtige Leben denkt, an den Augenblick, wo man wirklich lebt, sondern an den, wo man erst zu leben gedenkt. So findet man sich immer in dem Stande, daß man erst leben will, und nicht, daß man jetzt wirklich lebt.”
Blaise Pascal
