Provocation #8

It is a proud thing to dive into danger, and it is a proud thing to battle with untold horrors, but it is also wretched to have an abundance of intentions and a poverty of action, to be rich in truths and poor in virtues.

This is something I feel every day, as I drive my 30 miles to work and back 5 times a week, and rarely am out in the world doing what needs to be done. Stay tuned for some ways that we can act and live virtuously.

Provocations are taken from Provocations: The Spiritual Writings of Kierkegaard

One thought on “Provocation #8”

  1. There are times in life where the mundane overwelms and it feels like nothing good can come from it. It could be that all that mundane can spur us into action and make us desire something more from our lives. I’m looking forward to reading more of your thoughts/ideas on this.
