Quote by Albert Camus
For who would dare to assert that eternal happiness can compensate for a single moment's human suffering
This quote suggests that no amount of eternal happiness can outweigh or make up for even the slightest moment of human suffering. It highlights the profound impact and significance of human experiences and emotions, emphasizing that the value of pain and suffering cannot be erased or outweighed by any form of eternal bliss. It emphasizes the importance of acknowledging and addressing the suffering that individuals endure, as it cannot simply be brushed aside or forgotten.
My coming to faith did not start with a leap but rather a series of staggers from what seemed like one safe place to another. Like lily pads, round and green, these places summoned and then held me up while I grew. Each prepared me for the next leaf on which I would land, and in this way I moved across the swamp of doubt and fear.
Now we have no God. We have had two: the old God that our fathers handed down to us, that we hated, and never liked; the new one that we made for ourselves, that we loved; but now he has flitted away from us, and we see what he was made of -- the shadow of our highest ideal, crowned and throned. Now we have no God.
