Does anyone know where the quote is actually from? I tried to scour the web for the actual source, but it seems one that keeps getting quoted without a reference to its origins.

There were a couple that tried to tie it to The Outsider / The Stranger, but I can't see it in there...



As feared, this is another interweb meme that is actually not a quote by Camus.

A positive that has come out of this, however, is that TA (many thanks!) found the following paper on how Camus is misquoted on the web and in literature. It makes for really interesting reading.
