Søren Kierkegaard: Making Friends

17 July 2018

People sometimes complain that they can’t make any friends. However, this is often untrue and usually one’s own fault. It depends on what a person wants in this world; if all he has are finite aims, whatever they may be, there will always be someone willing to agree with him. But if a person aims for the highest, then with each sacrifice he will find no friend, for there is no common interest that can unite them but rather the very opposite of interest: sheer sacrifice. In this regard a friend would therefore often be a burden. One ought therefore to be careful.
