Life is fragile…

In an article that resonated with me:

Camus suggests that the comfortable habits of modern life are, at best, mixed blessings. They allow us to mask the absurd, and therefore to mask what is most basic about our nature: that we are fragile, that life is the futile process of not dying. Ignoring these facts of life amounts to what Camus calls “philosophical suicide,” a state in which individuals—in a giant act of self-deception—pretend that the universe is well-fitted to human purposes.
