“Belief is a wise wager granted that faith can not be proved. What harm will come to you if you gamble on its truth and it proves false?…”
“You must wager… Let us way the gain and loss in wagering if God exists. If you gain you gain All. If you lose you lose nothing…”

“Wager then without hesitation that God exists. If at first you find it difficult to believe follow the customs of the Church, as if you did believe. Bless yourself with Holy Water, have Masses said and so on.”

“By a simple and natural process this will make you believe and will dull you and quite your proudly critical intellect. Go to Confession and Communion. You will find it a relief and strengthening.”
– Blaise Pascal
