4.36 “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
4.37 “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
4.38 “Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.”
4.39 “Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”
4.40 “Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.”

About Albert Camus
Albert Camus (1913-1960) was a French philosopher who, in 1957 at age 44, received the Nobel Prize for Literature — the second youngest ever to do so. (The youngest was Rudyard Kipling at age 42.) Camus’s “…views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He wrote in his essay The Rebel that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.”
The suggested theme for July is “freedom,” but if you have a favorite quote about any other uplifting subject, please let us know. We’re always accepting favorite quotes.
As always, we would love to feature your creative visions too! If you would like to contribute photos, art work, short poems/stories, quotes, time, etc., please see our “About Us” page for details. When we show each other what we find beautiful, we get a glimpse into each others’ hearts.
May you find joy every day of your journey through life,
