Kierkegaard Quote Source - Proposed by Kalki February 14 2007 edit
Do you know the actual source for this quote? I don't think Kierkegaard is the author, and your proposed QOTD from Feb 2007 is the earliest known publication of this quote (digital, book, or otherwise) that I can find.
"When one has once fully entered the realm of love, the world — no matter how imperfect — becomes rich and beautiful, it consists solely of opportunities for love."
Any more specific info on the quote origin would be great.
- Thanks for the inquiry. I seem to have first added this to the Kierkegaard page as being cited to Works of Love (1847) in an edit of 13th February 2007; I do not currently recall what source I had for that attribution. It seems to have remained on the page in the subsection for that work, prior to the page being extensively broken up into pages for separate works by other editors. None of the translations currently accessible to me have the statement, but it could be in a lesser-known translation or arose somewhere as a paraphrase of some statements within it, or perhaps is an improper attribution altogether; I will investigate it further to the extent I can in coming days. ~ 00:11, 30 November 2023 (UTC)
