And when the hourglass has run out, the hourglass of temporality,

when the noise of secular life has grown silent and its restless or
ineffectual activism has come to an end, when everything around you
is still, as it is in eternity, then eternity asks you and every
individual in these millions and millions about only one thing:
whether you have lived in despair or not.

—Soren Kierkegaard,
“The Sickness Unto Death”, Datalinks
