Albert Camus (b. November 7): “Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth” & other quotes on writing

7 Nov

Albert Camus (born 7 November 1913, died 4 January 1960) was a French author, journalist, and philosopher. He was awarded the 1957 Nobel Prize for Literature, the second-youngest recipient after Rudyard Kipling, and the first African-born writer to receive the award. He died in a car accident two years after receiving the award.

Quotes on writing

  1. Fiction is the lie through which we tell the truth.
  2. A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
  3. The purpose of a writer is to keep civilization from destroying itself.
  4. People can think only in images. If you want to be a philosopher, write novels.
  5. Those who write clearly have readers; those who write obscurely have commentators.
