“Contemporary intelligence seems to measure the truth of doctrines and causes solely by the number of armored divisions that each can put into the field.”
Albert Camus (via my-southernsoul)
“But for the simpler among us the evil of our times can be defined by it’s effects rather than by it’s causes. That evil is the State, whether a police state or a bureaucratic state. Its proliferation in all countries under cover of the most varied ideological pretexts, the revolting security granted it by mechanical and psychological means of repression make of the State a mortal danger for everything that is best in each of us.”

“Faced with this misery, he who lived almost as a monk in this lost school, content for that matter with the little he had, and with this rough life, had felt like a king, with his rendered walls, his narrow couch, his white wooden shelves, his wells, and his weekly provisions of water and food. And, all of a sudden, this snow, without warning, without the soothing rain before it. The land was as such, hard to live with, even without the men, who didn’t better anything for that matter. But Daru was born there. Everywhere else, he felt himself exiled.”

“Stupidity has a knack of getting its way; as we should see if we were not always so much wrapped up in ourselves.”

“In default of inexhaustible happiness, eternal suffering would at least give us a destiny. But we do not even have that consolation, and our worst agonies come to an end one day.”

“You always get exaggerated notions of things you don’t know anything about. I was made to see that contrary to what I thought, everything was very simple: the guillotine is on the same level as the man approaching it. He walks up to it the way you walk up to another person.”
