Quote of the Day…

Posted in General on June 29, 2007 by Steve

“This is what is sad when one contemplates human life, that so many live out their lives in quiet lostness … they live, as it were, away from themselves and vanish like shadows. Their immortal souls are blown away, and they are not disquieted by the question of its immortality, because they are already disintegrated before they die.”

– Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), Danish philosopher.

From “Balance Between Esthetic and Ethical, Volume 2”.
