10 Quotes From Albert Camus That Will Inspire You

I read Nobel Prize-winning French philosopher and author Albert Camus recently and was totally blown away. Here are a few of my favorite excerpts; I hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me.

  1. “Live to the point of tears.”
  2. “Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.”
  3. “But in the end one needs more courage to live than to kill himself.”
  4. “To be happy, we must not be too concerned with others.”
