Editorial Reviews


One of The Wall Street Journal Bookshelf Best Books of 2013, chosen by Mike Tyson

"[A] collection of awesome quotes from that great Danish philosopher."--Mike Tyson

"Marino's offers a collection that touches all of Kierkegaard's obsessions, from anxiety and depression to time and eternity and existence and God and Christ and love. The book is, as Marino hoped, full of arresting one-liners. . . . Beyond the aphorisms are penetrating arguments wound tightly into brief paragraphs."--Peter Leithart, First Things

"This handily compact treasury of assorted thoughts, observations, and insights bursts with Kierkegaard's characteristically infectious urgency, wit, and lapidary penetration. The volume gathers some 800 thematically organized passages--generally no longer than a few sentences--drawn from the sweeping range of this influential 19th-century Danish existentialist philosopher and theologian's published discourses, polemical tracts, books, pseudonymous works, journals, and notebooks."--

From the Inside Flap

"The Quotable Kierkegaard serves equally well as an introduction or a reference book. There is no better way to sample the unique flavor of Kierkegaard's thought. And if you ever need a quotation for a speech or a sermon, for an epigraph or an epitaph, for a dedication or a denunciation, you're sure to find a striking one here."--David Lodge, author of Small World, Therapy, and other novels

"This book is the best of two worlds: a rich collection of quotations from Kierkegaard that also provides a quick introduction to the central core of his thinking."--Alastair Hannay, author of Kierkegaard: A Biography

"This admirable selection of quotations from the eminently quotable Kierkegaard is a fine introduction to the breadth and variety of his thought."--Bruce H. Kirmmse, general editor of Kierkegaard's Journals and Notebooks

Self-evident from title. An anthropoid would deduce content from name of book. If this nomenclature is insufficient, go to Wikipedia and insert Kierkegaard in the search box.

Long a fan of Kierkegaard, I am grateful to have this reference to some of the most pithy and pointed quotes. The chapters are well organized to make it helpful to see connections.
