Culture: the cry of men in face of their destiny.

Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears.


Albert Camus

To abandon oneself to principles is really to die - and to die for an impossible love which is the contrary of love.


Albert Camus

Man is an idea, and a precious small idea once he turns his back on love.


Albert Camus

But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?

I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.


Albert Camus

896

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.


Albert Camus

896

The only real progress lies in learning to be wrong all alone.
