“On the contrary, he whose soul expects an eternal happiness, has always present in himself that which is valid in itself, and against which all the petty appears as the petty. He is constantly influenced by an aspiration which does not bring him into conflict with anyone, or with anything earthly, whose possession does not exclude anyone else. That is, he can lose the earthly, and if he loses it in the right way, then its loss will make the difficult easier, so that a camel can go through the eye of a needle; and he will not wish to exclude anyone, if he himself is anxious in the right way.” Kierkegaard, The Expectation of an Eternal Happiness.
