Blaise Pascal's Pensees

From Blaisie Pascal ‘Pensees’:

'the only thing that consoles us from our miseries is diversion, and yet this is the greatest of our miseries. For it is mainly what prevents us from thinking about ourselves, leading us imperceptibly to our ruin, without it we would be bored, and this boredom would drive us to seek a more solid means of escape. But diversion amuses us and guides us imperceptibly to death"
