    C’est seulement quand on est assez habile pour vouloir construire un système sans y introduire l’éthique que tout marche bien, que l’on possède un système où l’on a tout, tout le reste, et où l’on a omis la seule chose nécessaire.

    Sören Kierkegaard

    La vita è una somma di scelte e di non scelte, di cose che si possono controllare e di cose che invece sfuggono al controllo

    In matters of religion, [Søren Kierkegaard] claimed, "truth is subjectivity," a demonstration of passionate inwardness and decision. Thus one can pray in truth even as one may "in fact" worship an idol, because what matters most is not what is said but how it is said. Clearly, Kierkegaard is correct to emphasize the significance of passionate inwardness in the life of prayer, since we know that the same words uttered in the mouth of another can ring untrue or inauthentic. We each inhabit different stages on life's way and so approach and relate to the infinite in our own unique manner, that is, the assurance of uniform and universally applicable religious and philosophical doctrines in no way excuses us from the lifelong task of personal appropriation, of untying the knots of life for ourselves.
    Where his analysis falls short, however, is in limiting the how of prayer to the believer's inwardness, the passionate relation (decision in the face of uncertainty and risk) the speaker maintains to what is said. A more complete account of the "how" of prayer must also include the believer's relation to the world, not simply through passionate decision but through faithful response and action, because the world, understood as God's creation, informs the practical bearing of prayer. Put another way, Kierkegaard's account of subjectivity, particularly in the Climacus texts, is too much confined to the life of the individual—the how of inwardness. It lacks sufficient appreciation of the subject as a created being enmeshed within a created world, a being that must learn to comport itself practically in ways that reflect its creaturely status—the how of outwardness.

    “God be with you-(as Echo closes the door) the devil be with you. Finally I got rid of him. Oh, why have I become a social animal, a human being, why not an owl or a bittern, then I would be free from the worst torment-from friends.”

    S.Kierkegaard (1990). Early Polemical Writings, p.110

    È bastato uno sguardo, o un gesto, o un breve colloquio. La loro anima se n’è andata, per un istante, per un’ora.

    Che maledizione essere donna! Eppure, quando si è una donna, la peggiore maledizione è infatti non capire di esserlo.

    To cheat oneself out of love is the most terrible deception; it is an eternal loss for which there is no reparation, either in time or in eternity.

    “Volevo scriverti, non per sapere come stai tu, ma per sapere come si sta senza di me. lo non sono mai stato senza di me e quindi non lo so. Vorrei sapere cosa si prova a non avere me che mi preoccupo di sapere se va tutto bene, a non sentirmi ridere, a non sentirmi canticchiare canzoni stupide, a non sentirmi sbraitare quando mi arrabbio, a non avermi pronto lì a fare qualsiasi cosa per farti stare bene. Forse si sta meglio, o forse no. Però mi è venuto il dubbio e vorrei anche sapere se ogni tanto questo dubbio è venuto anche a te. Perché sai, io a volte me lo chiedo come si sta senza di te, poi però preferisco non rispondere che tanto va bene così.

    Ho addirittura dimenticato me stesso per poter ricordare te.”

    (Soren Kierkegaard)

    Esistere significa poter scegliere; anzi, essere possibilità. Ma ciò non costituisce la ricchezza, bensì la miseria dell’uomo. La sua libertà di scelta non rappresenta la sua grandezza, ma il suo permanente dramma. Infatti egli si trova sempre di fronte all’alternativa di una possibilità che sì e di una possibilità che no, senza possedere alcun criterio di scelta. E brancola nel buio, in una posizione instabile, nella permanente indecisione, senza riuscire ad orientare la propria vita, intenzionalmente, in un senso o nell’altro.
