The existential philosopher Søren Kierkegaard once wrote that, "to love God is to love oneself truly." Conversely, reality TV star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian once said, "It doesn't matter if you have a valentine or not - just love yourself and be your own."

And now, the two inspirational voices have come together in one amazing Twitter feed, titled KimKierkegaardashian. The account is only a few weeks old but has already accumulated more than 26,000 followers. Each of the account's tweets contains the self-described, "philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard mashed with the tweets and observations of Kim Kardashian."

Some recent observations include, "Good morning Miami! Here everything lies naked and visible before God, and consciousness has nowhere to hide."

And this offering from July 20, "I scarcely recognize myself. My mind is like a turbulent sea. I was testing new mascara!"

Or this July 18 entreaty on modern beauty: "Botox, to me, doesn't even count as plastic surgery. But out of his own nervousness, man is always eager to point out his neighbor's faults."

For the record, here are Kardashian's real-life Twitter feed and the account of Justin Buber, which describes itself as, "Combining the pop stylings of Justin Bieber with the existential wisdom of philosopher Martin Buber."
