“To be clear in my mind what I am to do, not what I am to know, except in so far as a certain understanding must precede every action. The thing is to understand myself…the thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die.”

— Søren Kierkegaard, The Journals of Kierkegaard 1834–1854

“He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how.”

Friedrich Nietzsche
