Bite-Sized Wisdom: Camus

“Truly fertile Music, the only kind that will move us, that we shall truly appreciate, will be a Music conducive to Dream, which banishes all reason and analysis. One must not wish first to understand and then to feel. Art does not tolerate Reason.”

– Albert Camus

  1. It’d be nice to see fuller attributions for these quotations. For instance, where did Camus say or write this? Also, I wonder about the capitalized nouns. I don’t recall seeing him do that in anything I’ve read.
