Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.
Albert Camus

Other quotes by Albert Camus

Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal.

We are all special cases.

Integrity has no need of rules.

Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without asking a clear question.

At any street corner the feeling of absurdity can strike any man in the face.
