A nugget from one of my favourite site

You know, on the left column, my favourite sites... 
Among them, there is by Anu Garg
another word lover, another logophile ;-)
Anu, if you subscribe to his newsletter or visit his website,
gives you a new word each day with its definition, its origins and a quote or two containing that word.
But there's a bonus, the "cerise sur le gâteau", it's a quote, a random quote. 
Well, not so random.. Anu must be a wise man for the quotes he chooses are always full of wisdom.
I thought i'd send you today's "cherry quote". Translated into English by a famous Frenchman:

Having been unable to strengthen justice, 
we have justified strength.
Blaise Pascal. Mathematician and philosopher. 1623-1662
