Blaise Pascal 1623 - 1662 Born at Clerment-Ferrand in June 19, 1623. Mother died when Pascal was three years old. Brought up by two sisters: Gilberte, author of an excellent biography on Pascal, and Jacqueline, who competed with Pascal as a child prodigy. Died at the age of 39 in intense pain from cancer. In one of his most famous books, he says: “If God does not exist, one stands to lose nothing by believing in him anyway, whereas if he does exist, one stands to lose everything by not believing,” which is said to be his motto.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
