Life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards. - Søren Kierkegaard (The Journals Quotes)

Life must be understood backwards. But they forget the other proposition, that it must be lived forwards.[Livet maa forstaaes baglænds. Men derover glemmer man den anden Sætning, at det maa leves forlænds.]
