Sisyphus (Greek: Σίσυφος, Sísyphos) 

"It is during that return, that pause, that Sisyphus interests me. […] All Sisyphus' silent joy is contained therein. His fate belongs to him. […] There is no sun without shadow, and it is essential to know the night. […] At that subtle moment when man glances backward over his life, Sisyphus returning toward his rock, in that slight pivoting he contemplates that series of unrelated actions which become his fate, created by him, combined under his memory's eye. […] The rock is still rolling. I leave Sisyphus at the foot of the mountain! One always finds one's burden again. But Sisyphus teaches the higher fidelity that negates the gods and raises rocks. He too concludes that all is well. This universe henceforth without a master seems to him neither sterile nor futile. Each atom of that stone, each mineral flake of that night filled mountain, in itself forms a world. The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy." ~ Albert Camus
