Happy Birthday, Albert Camus, born 7 November 1913, died 4 January 1960
Ten Albert Camus Quotes
  1. You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.
  2. In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
  3. You know what charm is: a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question.
  4. There are causes worth dying for, but none worth killing for.
  5. The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
  6. The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
  7. Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.
  8. It is the job of thinking people not to be on the side of the executioners.
  9. Seeking what is true is not seeking what is desirable.
  10. We all carry within us places of exile, our crimes, our ravages. Our task is not to unleash them on the world; it is to transform them in ourselves and others.
Camus was a French author, journalist, and philosopher. He was awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was the second-youngest recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, after Rudyard Kipling, and the first African-born writer to receive the award. He died in a car accident two years after receiving the award.
