A Quote by Albert Camus on creation, culture, freedom, future, gifts, relatives, and society

Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.

A Quote by Albert Camus on despair, hope, lies, life, understanding, and words

There are some words that I have never really understood, such as sin. . . . For if there is sin against life, it lies perhaps less in despairing of it than in hoping for another life and evading the implacable grandeur of the one we have.

A Quote by Albert Camus on blindness, brothers, day, execution, happiness, hope, indifference, time, wishes, and world

As if that blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope; for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world. Finding it so much like myself - so like a brother, really - I felt that I had been happy and that I was happy again. For everything to be consummated, for me to feel less alone, I had only to wish that there be a large crowd of spectators the day of my execution and that they greet me with cries of hate.

We are not certain, we are never certain. If we were we could reach some conclusions, and we could, at last, make others take us seriously.
