"Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature; but he is a thinking reed." Whose quote is that?

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jean-Paul Sartre
Montesquieu
Blaise Pascal
The quote comes from the Pensées ("Thoughts"), a collection of fragments on theology and philosophy written by 17th-century philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal. Pascal's religious conversion led him into a life of asceticism, and the Pensées was in many ways his life's work.
