For the crime of cheating death Sisyphus is condemned by the Greco-Roman gods. He must push his boulder up the mountain each day, only to see it roll back down for eternity. This task is absurd -like so much of life- why else would we develop a sense of humor that laughs at absurdity?
“The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart, one must imagine Sisyphus happy. ” -Albert Camus
“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead…”-Albert Einstein
“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
― William Morris
