Literary Miscellanea: Pascal on Truth

Today’s Literary Flashback is one entry from Pascal’s Pensées:

La vérité est si obscurcie en ce temps et le mensonge si établi qu’à moins d’aimer la vérité, on ne saurait la reconnaître.

Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.
