A Quote by Alfred Nobel on contentment, enemies, family, friendship, future, illusions, kindness, laws, life, love, memory, sister, survival, and vanity

To his sister-in-law: What a contrast between us! You live a warm and glowing life, surrounded by loved ones whom you care for and who care for you; you are anchored in contentment. I drift about without rudder or compass, a wreck on the sea of life; I have no memories to cheer me, no pleasant illusions of the future to comfort me, or about me to satisfy my vanity. I have no family to furnish the only kind of survival that concerns us, no friends for the wholesome development of my affections, or enemies for my malice.

Alfred Nobel

A Quote by Albert Camus on confession, generosity, love, selfishness, and vanity

The act of love . . . is a confession. Selfishness screams aloud, vanity shows off, or else true generosity reveals itself.

Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)
