The Meaning of life
is watching the steps
of the escalator
in the darkness
I was reading about Søren Kierkegaard today and wanted to write about him, but not on the phone I am using now so here are some quotes.
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.
How did I get into the world? Why was I not asked about it and why was I not informed of the rules and regulations but just thrust into the ranks as if I had been bought by a peddling shanghaier of human beings? How did I get involved in this big enterprise called actuality? Why should I be involved? Isn’t it a matter of choice? And if I am compelled to be involved, where is the manager—I have something to say about this. Is there no manager? To whom shall I make my complaint?
Boredom is the root of all evil – the despairing refusal to be oneself.
The present state of the world and the whole of life is diseased. If I were a doctor and were asked for my advice, I should reply, ‘Create silence’.
