Coeur Rage

“But in the end one needs more courage to live than to kill himself.”
― Albert Camus

I saw this on a blog, Alexander, under his list of quotes from male philosophers. Please check him out.

It reminded me of when I worked with gang members and incarcerated violent offenders. ” I die for my vario, I die for my family!” I never heard one say I will live for. So I would challenge them and ask,” what are you willing to live for. It is easy to die, but to face something, to stand up and fight for what you truly believe in or love that takes courage.
As I define courage, Coeur rage, it takes the rage of the heart to live a life of integrity and truth, joy and wonder, so I ask you where does your heart rage? What do you have the Coeur rage to live for?
