A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on effort, ideas, ignorance, justice, mind, philosophy, and understanding

One is not unpopular because he uses peculiar expressions; that just so happens; such terms become a fad, and by and by everybody, down to the last simpleton, uses them. But a person who follows through an idea in his mind is, and always will be, essentially unpopular. That is why Socrates was unpopular, though he did not use any special terms, for to grasp and hold his 'ignorance' requires greater vital effort than understanding the whole of Hegel's philosophy.

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on imperfection, love, opportunity, and world

When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world - no matter how imperfect - becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love.

A Quote by Søren Aabye Kierkegaard on responsibility

Oh Luther, Luther; your responsibility is great indeed, for the closer I look the more clearly do I see that you overthrew the Pope - and set the public on the throne.
