The Flux of Opinions | Søren Kierkegaard (1938)

Peter Keetman, 1001 Faces, 1956

“No, like worldly contempt, worldly honor is a whirlpool, a play of confused forces,
an illusory moment in the flux of opinions. It is a sense-deception, as when a swarm
of insects at a distance seem to the eye like one body; a sense-deception, as when the
noise of the many at a distance seems to the ear like a single voice.”

 Søren Kierkegaard, Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing: 
Spiritual Preparation for the Office of Confession, 1938
