- Gertrude Stein

A washerwoman with her basket; a rook; a red-hot poker; th purples and grey-greens of flowers: some common feeling which held the whole together.

He also formulated Pascal’s Wager, a theorem which argues that logic demands belief in God, as one has nothing to lose in the afterlife if He does not exist.

The lady in the red dress is moving all around the uptown
She's going to Paris and Rome on her way around
But you know she's not traveling, you know she's only moving around
And her tastes aren't so simple, she'll break your bank for her evening gown

The Greek politician writes his views out into a haiku
He reads it to the press, who find it to be simple as a rule
The write it with pencils and pens and other fine tools
And they all pretend
