SOREN KIERKEGAARD ~ ON PASSION

in Art & the Unconscious Mind by
soren

It is really curious how men, whom I otherwise look upon as honest, and who in other respects are not my enemies, lie monstrously, and are hardly conscious of it themselves, when they really get into a passion. Passion has an extraordinary power. How foolish, then, is the modern seeking after system upon system, as though help was to be found there; no, passion must be purified.

Soren Kierkegaard’s Journal, 1846
