A man wants to earn money in order to be happy, and his whole effort and the best of life are devoted to the earning of that money. Happiness is forgotten; the means are taken for the end.

It is a kind of spiritual snobbery that makes people think they can be happy without money.

Happiness and the absurd are two sons of the same earth. They are inseparable.

Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

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. ―Albert Camus

In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

Every achievement is a servitude. It compels us to a higher achievement.
