Everything I Know about Morality and the Obligations of Men, I owe it to Football
Black framed print on sustainable and environmentally friendly Bamboo paper
As lovers of words, the IQ squad thought it only fitting to include in their very first ‘starting eleven’ a football-themed quote from one of the greatest literary minds of the 20th century: Albert Camus – philosopher, author, journalist and absurdist extraordinaire.
Writing for The Telegraph in January 2010, which marked 50 years since Camus’ premature death in a car accident aged just 47, Jim White distilled the essence of the man and his lifelong love affair with football quite beautifully:
‘…As is often the way with those plucked prematurely from their thinking posts, it was a violent death that sealed his mystique. In the five decades since, he has come to be recognised as many things: roué, novelist, drinker, resistance hero, one-time friend but later sworn enemy of Jean-Paul Sartre. More to the point, he is now recognised as a man who understood the true profundity of football…’
Framed in real wood frames manufactured in Gloucestershire, UK, this product will arrive framed beautifully and ready to hang.
