It is impossible to give a clear account of the world, but art can teach us to reproduce it—just as the world reproduces itself in the course of its eternal gyrations. The primordial sea indefatigably repeats the same words and casts up the same astonished beings on the same sea-shore.
Albert Camus (1913–1960), French-Algerian philosopher, author. “Absolute Affirmation,” pt. 2, The Rebel (1951, trans. 1953).
