Søren Says

It is human self-renunciation when a man denies himself and the world opens up to him. But it is Christian self-renunciation when a man denies himself and, because the world precisely for this shuts itself up to him, he must as one thrust out by the world seek God’s confidence. The double-danger lies precisely in meeting opposition there where he had expected to find support, and he has to turn about twice; whereas the merely human self-resignation turns once.

  1. You will be happy to know that I have added Kierkegaard quotes to my facebook page.

    The only thing philosophical I intend to keep around now that I am done writing my philosophy essay.

    Yep, very happy indeed. Although I’m not sure what a facebook is. Maybe I’ll add Kierkegaard’s face to my quotebook!
