"Art is the activity that exalts and denies simultaneously. ‘No artist tolerates reality,’ says Nietzsche. That is true, but no artist can get along without reality. Artistic creation is a demand for unity and a rejection of the world. But it rejects the world on account of what it lacks and in the name of what it sometimes is."
Albert Camus, The Rebel (via outofthedarkness)
"Jamais je n’avais senti, si avant, à la fois mon détachement de moi-même et ma présence au monde."
Albert Camus (via weusedtodream)
