“We help a person more by giving him a favorable image of himself rather than constantly reminding him of his shortages.”

-Albert Camus, Notebooks 1942-1951

For my first post, I think it fitting to offer this wisdom from celebrated French-Algerian philosopher and Nobel laureate, Albert Camus. Reflecting on those first English papers I received back that brandished marks of encouragement, I doubt I would have began pursuing wisdom in my free time, and thus doubt this page would be possible, if not for the fire that was ignited in me when I read them.

A special thanks to the facebook page linked below where I found this excerpt.
