Pascal on the need for engagement

Nothing is so insufferable to man as to be completely at rest, without
passions, without business, without diversion, without effort. Then he
feels his nothingness, his forlornness, his insufficiency, his weakness,
his emptiness. 
(Pascal, The Pensees, 1660/1950, p. 57).
