Red Letter Philosophy

Oct 22, 2021

Pascal wrote that, “the whole cause of a man's unhappiness is that he does not know how to stay quietly in his room.”  He also wrote that, “being unable to cure death, wretchedness, and ignorance, men have decided, in order to be happy, not to think about such things.”  In this episode, we look at why we find it so hard to sit quietly in our rooms; we look at why we decided to not think about such things; we look at why our lives are lives of diversion - and why this is spiritually dangerous.
