Camus is a cool dude.

"I shall tell you a great secret, my friend. Do not wait for the last judgment, it takes place every day."

"I know of only one duty, and that is to love."

"A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession. "

"
Martyrs, my friend, have to choose between being forgotten, mocked or used. As for being understood - never. "



Albert Camus
