What does these mean to you?
(26/05/08 - OMG! I've just realised the ibon that i ta'd (the grammatical error) in the title of this post. Wow! In defiance i refuse to correct it. Nobody's perfect, right?!)
Soren Kierkegaard is the philosopher du jour in chez Undacova.
I like to engage in the pastime of navel gazing every once in a while, and i invite you to join me...What do these quotes mean to you:
1 - Face the facts of being what you are, for that is what changes what you are.
2 - Boredom is the root of all evil - the despairing refusal to be oneself.
3 - Faith is the highest passion in a human being. Many in every generation may not come that far, but none comes further.
4 - How absurd men are! They never use the liberties they have, they demand those they do not have. They have freedom of thought, they demand freedom of speech.
5 - If I am capable of grasping God objectively, I do not believe, but precisely because I cannot do this I must believe.
6 - Once you label me you negate me.
7 - People understand me so poorly that they don't even understand my complaint about them not understanding me.
8 - Love does not alter the beloved, it alters itself.
9 - Take away paradox from the thinker and you have a professor.
10 - Just as in earthly life lovers long for the moment when they are able to breathe forth their love for each other, to let their souls blend in a soft whisper, so the mystic longs for the moment when in prayer he can, as it were, creep into God.
