Spiritual Quote of the Day (Soren Kierkegaard, on Human and Divine Justice)

“Human justice is very prolix, and yet at times quite mediocre; divine justice is more concise and needs no information from the prosecution, no legal papers, no interrogation of witnesses, but makes the guilty one his own informer and helps him with eternity’s memory.” — Danish Christian theologian Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855), “Against Cowardliness,” in Eighteen Upbuilding Discourses (1843)
