Thing wetness of well known personalities over Emanuel Swedenborg

C. G. Jung:

"Emanuel Swedenborg (1688 - 1772) was a visionary of unequalled fertility, a scholarly man of superior intellect." (GW XVII/1, page 714)

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe:

"I am more willing than others to believe in another world than the visible one, and I have enough potency of poetry and enough vitality to feel even my limited self expanded to a swedenborgian spiritual cosmos."

Heinrich Heine:

"Swedenborg is thoroughly honest fellow, and his reports about the other world are authentic."

Anton von Webern:

"Now I am reading Swedenborg, and it makes me breathless. I expected something colossal but it's more than this."

Richard Matheson, author of the book: 'The End is only the Beginning'

"To say it in a short way: if a person trespasses from this life into another it the same as he is changing from one place to another and taking with him all that he posses. That wrote Swedenborg in the 18th century."

August Strindberg (1849 - 1912)

"Swedenborg's world is immense comprehensive. He had give answers to all of my questions, no matter how hard they had pressed me. Restless soul, tormented heart, take and read!"

D. T. Suzuki (1870 - 1966):

"For you Westerners, it is Swedenborg who is your Buddha, it is
he who should be read and followed!" (D. T. Suzuki:Swedenborg: Buddha of the North)

Helen Keller in 1931:

"Swedenborg's message has meant so much to me! It has given color and reality and unity to my thought of the life to come; it has exalted my ideas of love, truth, and usefulness; it has been my strongest incitement to overcome limitations."

Honoré de Balzac:

"I have come back to Swedenborg after vast studies of all religions, and after reading all the works published within the last sixty years. Swedenborg undoubtedly epitomizes all the religions - or rather the one religion - of humanity."

William Blake in "The Dance of Albion." 1800-1803:

"Swedenborg's visions are worthy of the attention of painters and poets...
they are the foundation for grand things."

Czeslaw Milosz:

"Let me explain why Swedenborg merits scrutiny. It is a fact that the greatest poets and prose writers have borrowed liberally from him. The list is long: first Blake, as his direct spiritual descendant; then Goethe, a fervent reader of Swedenborg (as was Kant!); followed by Edgar Allan Poe, Baudelaire, Balzac, Mickiewicz, Slowacki, Emerson, and Dostoevsky."

Elizabeth Barrett Browning:

"To my mind the only light that has been cast on the other life is found in Swedenborg's philosophy. It explains much that was incomprehensible."

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"The most remarkable step in the religious history of recent ages is that made by the genius of Swedenborg."

Thomas Carlyle:

"More truths are confessed in Swedenborg's writings than in those of any other man... One of the loftiest minds in the realm of mind... One of the spiritual suns that will shine brighter as the years go on."

Franklin D. Roosevelt:

Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States of Amerika: "In a world in which the voice of conscience too often seems still and small there is need of that spiritual leadership of which Swedenborg was a particular example."
