By Soren Kierkegaard

      When Christianity entered into the world, people were not Christians, and the difficulty was to become a Christian. Nowadays the difficulty in becoming a Christian is that one must cease to become a Christian. One best becomes a Christian without "Christianity." Not until a person has become so wretched that his only wish, his only consolation, is to die--not until then does Christianity truly begin.
