Darren over at The Arty Plantsman has nominated me for this challenge. Thank you my friend for thinking of me. I love quotes. Why? Without a doubt for the reflection and the search of meaning that they motivate. When a quote speaks to me, there is a process of reflection that usually leads to a better understanding of the world around me. This is at least my perception… Plus, as Dietrich says “… it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself.” I imagine that many of you feel the same because the use of quotes is quite common on websites.
For this challenge, I’ve decided to choose all of my quotes from Albert Camus, a French philosopher born in Algeria, author and journalist. Camus received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957.
The rules are:
Thank the person who nominates you – Thanks again Darren.
Post one quote per day for 3 consecutive days – Sorry. I will post my quotes in one blogpost.
Nominate three new bloggers each day – 9 nominees it is!
Quote from Summer (1954).
“Charm is a way of getting the answer Yes without asking a clear question.”
In this novel Camus addresses the theme of inaction and its consequences.
Day 3. (Three quotes)
“When the imagination sleeps, words are emptied of their meaning.”
Reflexions on The Guillotine (1957).
“In that daily effort in which intelligence and passion mingle and delight each other, the absurd man discovers a discipline that will make up the greatest of his strengths.”
The Myth of Sisyphus (1942).
“It takes time to live. Like any work of art, life needs to be thought about.”
A Happy Death, (1971).
To my nominees below: there is no obligation to participate. You can just take this as I sign of my respect for you as a blogger. Anyone else who wants to have a go is very welcome to do so!
