Engrave this Quote My conclusion will be simple. It will consist of saying, in the very midst of the sound and the fury of our history: Let us rejoice. Let us rejoice, indeed, at having witnessed the death of a lying and comfort-loving Europe and at being faced with cruel truths.

-Albert Camus
Engrave this Quote Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children. And if you dont help us, who else in the world can help us do this?

Art
Engrave this Quote To write is to become disinterested. There is a certain renunciation in art.

-Albert Camus
Engrave this Quote It is impossible to give a clear account of the world, but art can teach us to reproduce it --just as the world reproduces itself in the course of its eternal gyrations. The primordial sea indefatigably repeats the same words and casts up the same astonished beings on the same sea-shore.

-Albert Camus
Engrave this Quote Without freedom, no art; art lives only on the restraints it imposes on itself, and dies of all others.

-Albert Camus, Resistance, Rebellion, and Death
Engrave this Quote The aim of art, the aim of a life can only be to increase the sum of freedom and responsibility to be found in every man and in the world. It cannot, under any circumstances, be to reduce or suppress that freedom, even temporarily. No great work has ever been based on hatred and contempt. On the contrary, there is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it.

Beauty
Engrave this Quote At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the softness of the sky, the outline of these trees at this very minute lose the illusory meaning with which we had clothed them, henceforth more remote than a lost paradise... that denseness and that strangeness of the world is absurd.

-Albert Camus
Engrave this Quote Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offers us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.

Capital Punishment
Engrave this Quote Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal's deed, however calculated can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date at which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not encountered in private life.

Capitalism
Engrave this Quote The most eloquent eulogy of capitalism was made by its greatest enemy. Marx is only anti-capitalist in so far as capitalism is out of date.

Certainty
Engrave this Quote 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.

City Life, Cities
Engrave this Quote As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means.

Creation
Engrave this Quote On certain mornings, as we turn a corner,
an exquisite dew falls on our heart
and then vanishes.
But the freshness lingers, and this, always,
is what the heart needs.
The earth must have risen in just such a light
the morning the world was born.

-Albert Camus
Crime
Engrave this Quote For centuries the death penalty, often accompanied by barbarous refinements, has been trying to hold crime in check; yet crime persists. Why? Because the instincts that are warring in man are not, as the law claims, constant forces in a state of equilibrium.

Culture
Engrave this Quote Culture: the cry of men in face of their destiny.

-Albert Camus
Engrave this Quote 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.
