Our bounden duty


Yes, I know that Camus would be considered either an atheist or an agnostic but I'm going to quote him here anyway because I think this is really, really good:

I have no idea what's awaiting me, or what will happen when this all ends. For the moment I know this: there are sick people and they need curing.

-- Albert Camus

  1. I discovered Camus about 50 years ago and loved his writings. I remember a remarkable piece about "why suicide was not acceptable." Camus left this world much too soon. Thanks for this marvelous quote.

  2. I really like this comment as well. It points to the practical, in the moment priorities.
