Anxiety is freedom’s possibility; this anxiety alone is, through faith, absolutely formative, since it consumes all finite ends, discovers all their deceptions.
Freedom’s possibility is not the ability to choose the good or the evil. The possibility is to be able.[Frihedens Mulighed er ikke at kunne vælge det Gode eller det Onde. Muligheden er at kunne.]
Freedom is always in communication (even taking the religious meaning of the word into consideration does no harm); unfreedom withdraws ever more in its reserve and will not communicate.
Anyone not wanting to sink in the wretchedness of the finite is obliged in the most profound sense to struggle with the infinite.
