A Quote by Albert Camus


This passage confirms Albert Camus’ ‘The Sea Close By’ as one of the most beautiful and calming pieces of writing I shall ever read.


We sail across spaces so vast they seem unending. Sun and moon rise and fall in turn, on the same thread of light and night. Days at sea, even and indistinguishable as happiness…


Albert Camus, ‘The Sea Close By’, c.1954, in The Sea Close By (London: Penguin, 2013), p. 5.
