Words of Note

If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent,

sees the possible.

Sren Kierkegaard, 19th-c. Danish philosopher

From 'Either/Or,' in Vol. 1 of 'Diapsalmata'

(1843, translated 1987).
