The stranger
Albert Camus, 1942

“I may not have been sure about what really did interest me, but I was absolutely sure about what didn’t.”

“I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.”

“I had only a little time left and I didn’t want to waste it on God.”

“There is not love of life without despair about life.”

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

“Mother died today. Or maybe yesterday; I can’t be sure.”

“It is better to burn than to disappear.”

“After awhile you could get used to anything.”

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