“The spiritual man differs from us men in being able to endure isolation, his rank as a spiritual man is proportionate to his strength for enduring isolation, whereas we men are constantly in need of ‘the others,’ the herd; we die, or despair, if we are not reassured by being in the herd, of the same opinion as the herd.”

“The most fatal thing of all is to satisfy a want which is not yet felt, so that without waiting till the want is present, one anticipates it, likely also uses stimulants to bring about something which is supposed to be a want, and then satisfies it. And this is shocking! And yet this is what they do in the religious sphere, whereby they really are cheating men out of what constitutes the significance of life, and helping people to waste life.” ————————————————————————- ~Source: The Attack Upon “Christendom” (1854 – 1855) Author: Soren Kierkegaard

“When a man has a toothache the world says, ‘Poor man’; when a man’s wife is unfaithful to him the world says, ‘Poor man’; when a man is in financial embarrassment the world says, ‘Poor man’; when it pleased God in the form of a lowly servant to suffer in this world the world says, ‘Poor man’; when an Apostle with a divine commission has the honor to suffer for the truth the world says, ‘Poor man.’ — Poor world!” ——————————————– ~Source: The Attack Upon “Christendom” (1854-1855) Author: Soren Kierkegaard

“One lives only once. If when death comes thy life is well spent, that is, spent so that it is related rightly to eternity — then God be praised eternally.
If not, then it is irremediable — one lives only once.”
