Works of Love
Soren Kierkegaard

1 "What is it that really binds the temporal and the eternal? What is it other than love, which therefore is before everything else and remains when all else is past."

2 "One's neighbour is all men, unconditionally every human being."

3 "Everyone is one's neighbour."

4 "Love's command forbids despair – by commanding one to love. Who would have this courage without the eternal?....Your love has an eternal worth."

5 "There is a place in a human being's most inward depths; from this place proceeds the life of love."

6 "Your neighbor is every man….He is your neighbor on the basis of equality with you before God;…this equality absolutely every man has, and he has it absolutely."

7 "Christian love teaches love of all men, unconditionally all."

8 "Love is the origin of everything, and spiritually understood love is the deepest ground of the life of the spirit."

9 "Every man is your neighbor. In being king, beggar, scholar, rich man, poor man, male, female, etc., we do not resemble each other – therein we are all different. But in being a neighbour we are all unconditionally like each other."
