// by Soren Kierkegaard | Philosophy Department at St. Anselm College //

If there were no eternal consciousness in a man, 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 hidden beneath everything, what would life be but despair?

Anxiety is the dizziness of freedom.

(The Concept of Anxiety)
