Managing Monday… Some Tillich Quotes

Posted by on Mar 7, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

Last month we introduced ‘Managing Monday’ with 3 quotes each week from the great theologian of the church, Augustine. We will carry on with the three quotes each week format, but from different thinkers each week.

Here are three quotes from American/German existentialist theologian from the last century, Paul Tillich (1886-1965). While he had many notable insights (though theologically I differ from him on many, many points), these are the three most frequently cited Tillich quotes… Enjoy…

The first duty of love is to listen – Paul Tillich

Doubt is not the opposite of faith; it is one element of faith – Paul Tillich

And my Tillich favourite: Language had created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.

Have a great week…
