The thinker



If at the bottom of everything there were only a wild ferment, a power that twisting in dark passions produced everything great or inconsequential; if an unfathomable insatiable emptiness lay hid beneath everything, what would life be but despair?

Soeren Kierkegaard



The thinker

and the truth.

O do not fear and tremble
for the proof!

Each thing now belongs
To the one who now has it.

The genii will obey
The fool with the ring.

Who holds the world's treasures
holds the world's treasures.

Why indifferent rules?
Why irrational fools?
Why imperfect world?

O do not fear and tremble
for the truth!
