Alphabetarion # Freedom | Albert Camus, 1956

“Freedom is not a reward or a decoration that you toast in champagne. On the contrary,
it’s hard graft and a long-distance run, all alone, very exhausting. Alone in a dreary room,
alone in the dock before the judges, and alone to make up your mind, before yourself and
before the judgement of others. At the end of every freedom there is a sentence, which is
why freedom is too heavy to bear.”

Albert Camus, The Fall, 1956
