Today's quote, by Albert Camus:
"In the midst of hate, I found there was, within me, an invincible love. In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was, within me, an invincible calm. In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there's something stronger – something better, pushing right back."
So an existentialist atheist can be spiritual too. Camus had an intense interest in the active human psyche, in the life of conscience or spirit as it is actually experienced and lived, and a personal commitment to such values as individualism, free choice and personal responsibility. Reminds me of my dear father, atheist to the grave and as warm-hearted as a person can be.
