My Favourite Quote: Brian Martin, Seamfoam Media

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”
-Jean Paul Sartre from the book Being and Nothingness (1943)

“I read this book when I was at a crossroads in my life, and this quote really resonated with me. Sartre essentially says that we are responsible for our actions. I was at a low point career-wise and reading Sartre gave me the realization that if I was unhappy with where I was in life, it was because of choices I made. Since I am “condemned to be free”, I have the responsibility to change my life and to take the steps to improve myself.”
