Build Up!

Whatever terror and atrocity you have seen in the world, something you desire only to forget because it depresses your courage and your confidence and give you a distaste for life and disgust for living - consider only how love builds up and you are built up for living! There are numerous things to discuss, but there is only one up-building subject: how love builds up. Therefore whatever experience you may have had, however embittering, so much so that you may wish never to have been born and the sooner the better to become silent in death - think only of how love edifies, and you will again be built up to speak!

Søren Kierkegaard in Works of Love
