Saying a lot without speaking…

A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.  ~Albert Camus

  1. great quote!
    separate and unrelated to art, but related to albert camus quotes … i came across a quote of his – posted as part of a blog post of mine – http://shirlnutkin.blogspot.com/2011/04/greenleaf-on-camus.html – and here i’ve cut/paste below –

    “Great ideas, it has been said, come into the world as gently as doves. Perhaps, then, if we listen attentively, we shall hear, amid the uproar of empires and nations, a faint flutter of wings, the gentle stirring of life and hope. Some will say that this hope lies in a nation, others, in a man. I believe rather that it is awakened, revived, nourished by millions of solitary individuals whose deeds and works every day negate frontiers and the crudest implications of history. As a result, there shines forth fleetingly the ever-threatened truth that each and every person, on the foundations of his or her own sufferings and joys, builds for them all.”

    – Camus, 1961
