Thought for the week

"And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality, when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every individual in these millions and millions about only one thing: whether you have lived in despair or not."

-Soren Kierkegaard, "The Sickness Unto Death"

  1. How odd that I was reading another quote from Kierkegaard today also. Thanks for sharing that one.
