    If you ask most people who was the person who left us greatest quotes of all times, and reading his quotes will be a good lesson of wisdom, well, westerners may say Churchill, Iranians Saadi, or maybe Confucius, Budha... But I say: Albert Camus!

    Each of his quotes is a world of wisdom, an ocean of greatness, and you can see a lot of truth in a single sentence. Here are some of them:

    “Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”

    “In order to exist just once in the world, it is necessary never again to exist.”

    “What is a rebel? A man who says no”

    “You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.”

    “Charm is a way of getting the answer yes without asking a clear question.”

    “But what is happiness except the simple harmony between a man and the life he leads?”

    “I know of only one duty, and that is to love”

    “Man is the only creature that refuses to be what he is.”

    “If there is sin against life, it consists… in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.”

    “The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.”

    “We are all special cases.”

    “Some people talk in their sleep. Lecturers talk while other people sleep.”

    “Truth, like light, blinds. Falsehood, on the contrary, is a beautiful twilight that enhances every object.”

    "I rebel, therefore we exist!"
