Quote from Soren Kierkegaard,

"It is quite true what Philosophy says: that Life must be understood backwards. But that makes one forget the other saying: that it must be lived-forwards. The more one ponders this, the more it comes to mean that life in the temporal existence never becomes quite intelligible, precisely because at no moment can I find complete quiet to take the backward-looking position."


Soren Kierkegaard (more quotes by Soren Kierkegaard or books by/about Soren Kierkegaard)

(1813-1855) Danish philosopher
