"Do you or do you not, directly or indirectly, want to be killed or assaulted?"
"To come to terms, one must understand what fear means: what it implies and what it rejects. It implies and rejects the same fact: a world where murder is legitimate, and where human life is considered trifling. This is the great political question of our times, and before dealing with other issues, one must take a position on it. Before anything can be done, two questions must be put: 'Do you or do you not, directly or indirectly, want to be killed or assaulted? Do you or do you not, directly or indirectly, want to kill or assault?' All who say No to both these questions are automatically committed to a series of consequences which must modify their way of posing the problem."- Albert Camus, Neither Victim Nor Executioner
For something less deep, there is this cheerful thought:
Since we're all going to die, it's obvious that when and how don't matter.- Albert Camus, The Outsider.
