Infinite immensity

“When I consider the brief span of my life, swallowed up in the eternity before and behind it, the small space that I fill, or even see, engulfed in the infinite immensity of spaces which I know not, and which know not me, I am afraid, and wonder to see myself here rather that there; for there is no reason why I should be here rather than there, now rather than then.”

– Blaise Pascal, Pensées (ed. and trans. Gertrude B. Burford Rawlings. New York: Peter Pauper Press, 1946, p. 36, as quoted in: Rollo May: The Discovery of Being: Writings in Existential Psychology, Kindle version Page 51, Location 726-730)
