Quote by Albert Camus
Man is an idea, and a precious small idea once he turns his back on love.
This quote implies that humanity is defined by its capacity for love. When individuals neglect or reject love, they become reduced to mere ideas instead of thriving as fully realized beings. Love represents the essence of human nature, and without it, humans lose their significance and value. It suggests that love is integral in fulfilling our potential as individuals and as a species.
