So rich is life

Every now and again this thought reflects a sneaking suspicion I have about the Bible.

It always happens that way – so charitable, so rich is life: the less one has, the more one sees.  Take a book, the poorest one written, but read it with the passion that it is the only book you will read – ultimately you will read everything out of it, that is, as much as there was in yourself, and you could never get more out of reading, even if you read the best of books.

– Kierkegaard – Stages on Life’s Way, 364.
