Today is the hundredth anniversary of the birth of Albert Camus, so I thought I’d share a few quotes from one of his books:

stranger large“If something is going to happen to me, I want to be there.”

“Maman used to say that you can always find something to be happy about. In my prison, when the sky turned red and a new day slipped into my cell, I found out that she was right.”

“One always has exaggerated ideas about what one doesn’t know.”

All from The Stranger (first published in 1942).
