Here are some great quotes from Albert Camus, the author and philosopher famous for writing The Stranger and The Myth of Sisyphus.
Camus was also known for the concept of absurdism - the theory that human existence is absurd and searching for meaning is futile.
So, even if it is, read these and calm down.
“You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.”
“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.”
“Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.”
“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
“Find your happiness in yourself.”
“Life can be magnificent and overwhelming - that is the whole tragedy. Without beauty, love, or danger it would almost be easy to live.”
“Should I kill myself, or have a cup of coffee?”
“To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.”
“Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.”
“Life is a sum of all your choices. So, what are you doing today?”
