-Albert Camus
Oceans
Engrave this Quote As usual I finish the day before the sea, sumptuous this evening beneath the moon, which writes Arab symbols with phosphorescent streaks on the slow swells. There is no end to the sky and the waters. How well they accompany sadness!

Optimism
Engrave this Quote If Christianity is pessimistic as to man, it is optimistic as to human destiny. Well, I can say that, pessimistic as to human destiny, I am optimistic as to man.

Peace
Engrave this Quote We used to wonder where war lived, what it was that made it so vile. And now we realize that we know where it lives, that it is inside ourselves.

Perfection
Engrave this Quote We all carry within us our places of exile, our crimes, and our ravages. But our task is not to unleash them on the world; it is to fight them in ourselves and in others.

Politics
Engrave this Quote Politics and the fate of mankind are shaped by men without ideals and without greatness. Men who have greatness within them don't go in for politics.

-Albert Camus
Poverty
Engrave this Quote The Poor Man whom everyone speaks of, the Poor Man whom everyone pities, one of the repulsive Poor from whom charitable souls keep their distance, he has still said nothing. Or, rather, he has spoken through the voice of Victor Hugo, Zola, Richepin. At least, they said so. And these shameful impostures fed their authors. Cruel irony, the Poor Man tormented with hunger feeds those who plead his case.

Principles

Prison
Engrave this Quote To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good, and no-one in his right mind will believe this today.

Production
Engrave this Quote The myth of unlimited production brings war in its train as inevitably as clouds announce a storm.

Punishment
Engrave this Quote Retaliation is related to nature and instinct, not to law. Law, by definition, cannot obey the same rules as nature.

Reading
Engrave this Quote A novel is never anything, but a philosophy put into images.

-Albert Camus
Reality
Engrave this Quote Realism should only be the means of expression of religious genius... or, at the other extreme, the artistic expressions of monkeys which are quite satisfied with mere imitation. In fact, art is never realistic though sometimes it is tempted to be. To be really realistic a description would have to be endless.

Relationships
Engrave this Quote Human relationships always help us to carry on because they always presuppose further developments, a future --and also because we live as if our only task was precisely to have relationships with other people.

Revolution
Engrave this Quote Revolution, in order to be creative, cannot do without either a moral or metaphysical rule to balance the insanity of history.

Engrave this Quote More and more, revolution has found itself delivered into the hands of its bureaucrats and doctrinaires on the one hand, and to the enfeebled and bewildered masses on the other.
