Camus on Great Ideas

We shall hear amid the uproar of empires and nations a faint flutter of wings; the gentle stirring of life and hope.

Great ideas, it is said, come into the world as gently as doves. Perhaps, then, if we listen attentively, we shall hear amid the uproar of empires and nations a faint flutter of wings; the gentle stirring of life and hope.

— Albert Camus
