Quote of the week!

The quote comes from the novel La Peste by Albert Camus

It is:

Quand une guerre éclate, les gens disent: ,<< Ça ne durera pas , c’est trop bête.>> Et sans doute une guerre est certainement trop bête, mais cela ne l’empêche pas de durer.


When a war breaks out, the people say “It won’t last, it is too stupid”. And undoubtedly a war is too stupid, but this does not stop it from lasting.

(Warning: do not accept my translation as particularly useful or accurate, it is just a rough guide)
