Saturday Camus: Our First and Our Last Love

In the light, the earth remains our first and our last love.  Our brothers and sisters are breathing under the same sky as we; justice is a living thing.  Now is born that strange joy which helps one live and die, and which we shall never again postpone to a later time.

      That was a great rejoinder to the Communists when Camus wrote it in 1951, and it still speaks to us today. You’re right, it’s a memorable phrase. Thanks much for your comment.
