Søren Kierkegaard Quotes: I Think I Have The Courage To Doubt

I Think I Have The Courage To Doubt Everything; I Think I Have The Courage To Fight Everything. But I Do Not Have The Courage To Know Anything, Nor To Possess, To Own Anything. Most People Complain That The World Is So Prosaic, That Life Isn't Like A Romantic Novel Where Opportunities Are Always So Favorable. What I Complain Of Is That Life Is Not Like A Novel Where There Are Hard-hearted Fathers, And Goblins And Trolls To Fight With, Enchanted Princesses To Free. What Are All Such Enemies Taken Together Compared To The Pallid, Bloodless, Glutinous Nocturnal Shapes With Which I Fight And To Wich I Myself Give Life And Being.
