Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Silence is the demon’s trap, and the more one is silenced, the more terrible the demon; but silence is also the divinity’s mutual understanding with the single individual.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Human relations are like the irregular verbs in a number of languages where nearly all verbs are irregular.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “A genius may perhaps be a century ahead of his age and hence stands there as a paradox, but in the end, the race will assimilate what was once a paradox, so it is no longer paradoxical.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “It is not a gain that guilt should be wholly forgotten. On the contrary, it is loss and perdition. But it is a gain to win an inner intensity of heart through a deeper and deeper inner sorrowing over guilt.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “This is the miracle of life: that each person who heeds him or herself knows what no scientist can ever know: who he or she is.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Come, sleep and death; you promise nothing, you hold everything.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Philosophy is life’s dry-nurse, who can take care of us – but not suckle us.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “To stand on one leg and prove God’s existence is a very different thing from going down on one’s knees and thanking him.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “The genius differs from us men in being able to endure isolation, his rank as a genius is proportionate to his strength for enduring isolation, whereas we men are constantly in need of “the others,” the herd; we die, or despair, if we are not reassured by being in the herd, of the same opinion as the herd.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “The follower aspires with all his strength to be what he admires. And then, remarkably enough, even though he lives amongst a ‘Christian people,’ he incurs the same peril as he did when it was dangerous to openly confess Christ. And because of the follower’s life, it will become evident who the admirers are, for the admirers will become agitated with him. Even these words will disturb many – but then they must likewise belong to the admirers.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “The wisdom of the years is confusing. Only the wisdom of eternity is edifying.”
