Writer’s Quote Wednesday – Albert Camus

Good Morning Lovelies and welcome to another Writer’s Quote Wednesday. Today, I draw inspiration from Albert Camus, who before I saw this quote, I knew nothing about :).

I will be hosting a Book Signing party for The Stella Trilogy in two days, and the topic of my discussion will be Freedom. So you can imagine my excitement when I came across this quote. For me personally, it is not about rebelling against structure, for I live my life according to order and there are laws that govern me. However, this world is not a fair world. This world is not a free world. And as long as this world remains unfree, as a free woman, my very existence should always be in rebellion against it, lest I am a contradiction to my very self.

About The Author: From Biography.com:

camus

Albert Camus was born on November 7, 1913, in Mondavi, French Algeria. Camus became known for his political journalism, novels and essays during the 1940s. His best-known works, including The Stranger (1942) and The Plague (1947), are exemplars of absurdism (EC places imaginary question mark here). Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957 and died on January 4, 1960, in Burgundy, France.

  1. Yecheilyah, I have been exploring the definition of freedom since reading your series. I never really thought about it from all the different perspectives. As a Buddhist, I keep coming back to the definition: freedom has to do with detachment from anything owning you. I love this quote and the journey! Good luck on your book signing! I am excited for you! ❤

    1. Excellent. Cool definition. As a bible believer, I believe everything happens spiritually before it is made manifest physically and as such freedom itself is both spiritual and physical. I believe that to be held captive spiritually is worse than physical slavery and that for many people this is where the road to freedom begins. Knowledge of who we are and what our purpose is as individuals and collectives.
