"One should not think slightingly of the paradoxical; for the paradox is the source of the thinker's passion, and the thinker without a paradox is like a lover without a feeling; a paltry mediocrity . . . The supreme paradox of all thought is the attempt to discover something that thought cannot think."
~ Soren Kierkegaard, 1813–1855, a prolific 19th century Danish philosopher & theologian; from his 'Philosophical Fragments' (Philosophiske Smuler, 1844);
