Nihilism: Nothing is meaningful, and yet…

I proclaim that I believe in nothing and that everything is absurd, but I cannot doubt the validity of my proclamation and I must at least believe in my protest.

Albert Camus, The Rebel

A literature of despair is a contradiction in terms . . .In the darkest depths of nihilism I have sought only for the means to transcend nihilism.

Camus
