Soren Kierkegaard

Soren Kierkegaard

was a Danish Christian philosopher, theologian and religious author
Nowadays not even a suicide kills himself in desperation. Before taking the step he deliberates so long and so carefully that he literally chokes with thought. It is even questionable whether he ought to be called a suicide, since it is really thought which takes his life. He does not die with deliberation but from deliberation.More Soren Kierkegaard quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
