Quotes on happiness (Camus)

"We don't have time to be ourselves.  We only have time to be happy."

"What I'm sure of is that you can't be happy without money.  That's all.  I don't like superficiality and I don't like romanticism.  I like to be conscious.  And what I've noticed is that there's a kind of spiritual snobbism in certain 'superior beings' who think that money isn't necessary for happiness."

"Of course my life is ruined.  But I was right in those days:  everything for happiness, against the world which surrounds us with its violence and its stupidity."

"Don't think I'm saying that money makes happiness.  I only mean that for a certain class of beings happiness is possible, provided they have time, and that having money is a way of being free of money."

Albert Camus, A Happy Death
