He said, “In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. I realized through it all, that in the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For its says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there is something stronger- something better, pushing right back.”
I recently came across this Albert Camus quote an it felt like I had bumped into a old beloved friend. Albert Camus thought that life had no meaning, that nothing exists that could ever a source of meaning and hence there is something deeply absurd about the human quest to find meaning. Appropriately, then, his philosophical view is called (existentialist), absurdism.
The absurdist philosophy Albert Camus stated that individuals should embrace the absurd condition of human existence.
If you’ve never read any of Camus books I urge you to read “The Stranger.” It is a gem. Happy journey.
