“Infinite Resignation”

“Infinite resignation is the last stage before faith, so that whoever has not made this movement does not have faith. for only infinite resignatnion do I become transparent to myself in my eternal validity, and only then can there be talk of laying hold of existence by virtue of faith” (Kierkegaard, Fear and Trembling, p. 39).

The man of faith resigns himself infinitely to the impossibility of his desire, but then lays a hold of it regardless by a sudden leap into the absurd.
