Glad tidings for the melancholy

June 1, 2014

“Christianity is certainly not melancholy, it is, on the contrary, glad tidings — for the melancholy; to the frivolous it is certainly not glad tidings, for it wishes first of all to make them serious.”

Søren Kierkegaard, The Soul of Kierkegaard: Selections from His Journals, p. 129
