  • “What is it that makes one attached or interested in something that has nothing to offer? What are the seductions of that void, that ugliness, that tedium under a relentless, magnificent sky? I can reply: the creature. For certain races of men, the creature, when it is beautiful, is a homeland with a thousand capitals. Oran is one of them.”

    Albert Camus, Carnets
