Soren Kierkegaard

Soren Kierkegaard

was a Danish Christian philosopher, theologian and religious author
God is present in the moment of choice, not in order to watch but in order to be chosen. Therefore, each person must choose. Terrible is the battle, in a person's innermost being, between God and the world. The crowning risk involved lies in the possession of choice.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is the duty of the human understanding to understand that there are things which it cannot understand, and what those things are. Human understanding has vulgarly occupied itself with nothing but understanding, but if it would only take the trouble to understand itself at the same time it would simply have to posit the paradox.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
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.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
As the arrow, loosed from the bow by the hand of the practiced archer, does not rest till it has reached the mark, so men pass from God to God. He is the mark for which they have been created, and they do not rest till they find their rest in him.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Truth is not introduced into the individual from without, but was within him all the time.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
