Albert Camus

One of my favourite authors is definitely Albert Camus (click for his biography).

His famous work is “The Stranger (L’Étranger)” that contributed to the Nobel Prize awarded at the age of 46 (fairly young in comparison to most of the people who have got the Nobel Prize).

I also quite like his work “La Peste”.

Throughout his work in general, he often expresses “absurd” and “unjust” of human beings. Very interesting to read (quite depressing too).

Camus, in relation to the concept of “absurd”, he said “The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth”.

Another reason why I like Albert Camus is because of his inspiring quotes!

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

I would rather live my life as if there is no God and die to find there isn’t, than live my life as if there isn’t and die to find out there is.

Nobody realises that some people expand tremendous energy

merely to be normal.

Freedom is nothing but a chance to be better.
