Albert Camus

Charm is... a way of getting the answer yes without having asked any clear question.

Albert Camus

The real passion of the twentieth century is servitude.

Albert Camus

There will be no lasting peace either in the heart of individuals or in social customs until death is outlawed.

Albert Camus

Without culture, and the relative freedom it implies, society, even when perfect, is but a jungle. This is why any authentic creation is a gift to the future.

Albert Camus

You are forgiven for your happiness and your successes only if you generously consent to share them.

Albert Camus
