Most often, on the other hand, we confess to those who are like us and who share our weaknesses.

In short, we should like, at the same time, to cease being guilty and yet not to make the effort of cleansing ourselves. Albert Camus

For all to be accomplished, for me to feel less lonely, all that remained to hope was that on the day of my execution there should be a huge crowd of spectators and that they should greet me with howls of execration. Albert Camus

In that daily effort in which intelligence and passion mingle and delight each other, the absurd man discovers a discipline that will make up the greatest of his strengths.
