The modern mind is in complete disarray. Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world nor our intelligence can find any foot-hold. It is a fact that we are suffering from nihilism.
Albert Camus


Other quotes by Albert Camus

To know oneself, one should assert oneself.

But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?

We call first truths those we discover after all the others.

Don't wait for the last judgment - it takes place every day.

As a remedy to life in society I would suggest the big city. Nowadays, it is the only desert within our means.
