Kierkegaard

“There is something quite definite I have to say, and I have it so much upon my conscience that (as I feel it) I dare not die without having uttered it. For the instant I die and thus leave this world (so I understand it) I shall in the very same second be infinitely far away, in a different place where still within the same second the question will be put to me: ‘Hast Thou uttered the definite message quite definitely?’ And if I have not done so, what then?”
