A Little Light Kierkegaard

It’s been a while since I’ve shared random quotes on Saturdays, and I think I should try to rectify that, so here’s one I stumbled across yesterday.

The difference between an admirer and a follower still remains, no matter where you are. The admirer never makes any true sacrifices. He always plays it safe. Though in words, phrases, songs, he is inexhaustible about how highly he prizes Christ, he renounces nothing, gives up nothing, will not reconstruct his life, will not be what he admires, and will not let his life express what it is he supposedly admires.

Soren Kierkegaard, Provocations: Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

Thanks to David Capener for sharing it. I may well blog about it soon – though really, what more is there to say?


  1. I’ll keep following your blogs because they are truly admirable.

  2. yep… this is one of the quote notes i keep in my phone and read over again from time to time… a good one…

    • It’s great, isn’t it?
