“The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”
– Albert Camus (1913 – 1960)
This is my absolute favorite quote from Camus – and perhaps from anyone ever. Whenever I feel like I’m going down the wrong path or am not doing enough in this crazy, busybody world, I think of these words and immediately feel calmer.
I’ve integrated it into a poster I made a little while ago, which you can see and even make for yourself. I think I’ll even turn it into a free downloadable and post it up here for you folks to snatch up and print off, if you want. Stay tuned and stay rebellious, my friends.
Do you have a quote, phrase, or saying that has had a profound effect on you or helps you ground yourself? Leave it in the comments below for your fellow lonely tribalists to be moved by, as well!
