Lily

Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher of the nineteenth century and is considered to be the father of existentialism.

He realised that we could never truly express, or even precisely understand, our own suffering. He knew that others would struggle to truly understand our problems too and as a result he considered the gift of speech an ambivalent one.

In his search for answers Kierkegaard turned to nature and in the lilies and birds found two unlikely tutors. From them he learnt the therapeutic art of remaining silent.
