Soren Kierkegaard

Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)

“If the one who is to act wants to judge himself by the result, he will never begin. Although the result may give joy to the entire world, it cannot help the hero, for he would not know the result until the whole thing was over, and he would not become a hero by that but by making a beginning.”

  • From Soren Kierkegaard’s Fear and Trembling (Problema 1), translated by Howard V. and Edna H. Hong (Princeton University Press, 1983).
