This final entry in Kierkegaard’s hand was written on 25 September 1855. Eight days later, he was admitted to Frederik’s Hospital, where he died on 11 November, aged 42.

“This is life’s destiny: to be brought to the highest degree of weariness with life. Anyone brought to this point who can insist, or anyone who with God’s help can insist, that it is God who has brought him there out of love: he has, as a Christian, taken life’s examination and is ripe for eternity.”
