To be an idealist in imagination is not at all difficult, but to have to exist as an idealist is an extremely rigorous life-task, because existing is precisely the objection to it. - Søren Kierkegaard (Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Philosophical Fragments Quotes)

To be an idealist in imagination is not at all difficult, but to have to exist as an idealist is an extremely rigorous life-task, because existing is precisely the objection to it.[At være Idealist i Indbildningen er slet ikke vanskeligt, men at skulle existere som Idealist er en yderst anstrengende Livs-Opgave, fordi det at existere netop er Indsigelsen derimod.]
