Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “In the end, therefore, money will be the one thing people will desire, which is moreover only representative, an abstraction. Nowadays a young man hardly envies anyone his gifts, his art, the love of a beautiful girl, or his fame; he only envies him his money. Give me money, he will say, and I am saved... He would die with nothing to reproach himself with, and under the impression that if only he had had the money he might really have lived and might even have achieved something great.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Future is everything that past has forgotten.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “When you were called, did you answer or did you not? Perhaps softly and in a whisper?”
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: “In the Christianity of Christendom the Cross has become something like the child’s hobby-horse and trumpet.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “I am so fed up and joyless that not only have I nothing to fill my soul, I cannot even conceive of anything that could possibly satisfy it – alas, not even the bliss of heaven.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Human relations are like the irregular verbs in a number of languages where nearly all verbs are irregular.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “The stone that was rolled before Christ’s tomb might appropriately be called the philosopher’s stone because its removal gave not only the pharisees but, now for 1800 years, the philosophers so much to think about.”
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: “How ironical that it is by means of speech that man can degrade himself below the level of dumb creation – for a chatterbox is truly of a lower category than a dumb creature.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “But one must not think ill of the paradox, for the paradox is the passion of thought, and the thinker without the paradox is like the lover without passion: a mediocre fellow.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Men think that it is impossible for a human being to love his enemies, for enemies are hardly able to endure the sight of one another. Well, then, shut your eyes – and your enemy looks just like your neighbor.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “May new sufferings torment your soul.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Theology sits rouged at the window and courts philosophy’s favor, offering to sell her charms to it.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “To be a teacher does not mean simply to affirm that such a thing is so, or to deliver a lecture, etc.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “For like a poisonous breath over the fields, like a mass of locusts over Egypt, so the swarm of excuses is a general plaque, a ruinous infection among men, that eats off the sprouts of the Eternal.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “That which is truly human no generation learns from the one before it. No generation learns from another how to love. No generation has a shorter task assigned to it except insofar as the previous generation shirked its task and deluded itself.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “He follows his heart’s desire, but having found what he sought he wanders round to everyone’s door with his song and speech, so that all can admire the hero as he does, be proud of the hero as he is.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “In a mathematical proposition, for example, the objectivity is given, but therefore its truth is also an indifferent truth.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Only one human being recognized as one’s neighbour is necessary in order to cure a man of self-love.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Irony limits, finitizes, and circumscribes and thereby yields truth, actuality, content; it disciplines and punishes and thereby yields balance and consistency.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “Since my earliest childhood a barb of sorrow has lodged in my heart. As long as it stays I am ironic if it is pulled out I shall die.”

Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “I need the enchantment of creative work to help me forget life’s mean pettinesses.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “But doubt is wily and cunning and never, as it is sometimes said to be, loud or defiant. It is unassuming and sly, not bold or assertive – and the more unassuming, the more dangerous.”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “No one may pride himself at being more than an individual, and no one despondently think that he is not an individual...”
Soren Kierkegaard Quote: “There is a view of life which conceives that where the crowd is, there is also truth. There is another view of life which conceives that wherever there is a crowd, there is untruth.”
