Albert Camus on Poverty

“What could a man want that is better than poverty? I do not say misery, any more than I mean the work without hope of the modern proletarian. But I do not see that one could desire more than poverty with an active leisure.”

~ Albert Camus

Albert Camus / Something Must Happen

~ Albert Camus / The Fall

Albert Camus on Perseverance
