Quote by Blaise Pascal
All man's miseries derive from not being able to sit quietly in a room alone.
This quote by French philosopher Blaise Pascal suggests that the root cause of human suffering and discontent lies in mankind's inability to find solace and contentment in solitude. By highlighting the inability of individuals to find peace in their own company, the quote implies that constant distractions, social obligations, and external stimuli prevent individuals from truly understanding themselves and achieving inner peace. Pascal suggests that learning to be comfortable and at peace with solitude is vital for personal growth and happiness.
My mom passed away at 41 from diabetes. And I'm 42, thank you. I didn't want to do that to my son. So any time I was at the gym, that thing that helped me do that last squat was my son calling some other woman mommy. And that would just give me that extra oomph to do that last squat. I want to be around for him.
