„The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding.“

—  Albert Camus, livro The Plague

The Plague (1947)
Contexto: The evil that is in the world always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence, if they lack understanding.

But they are more or less ignorant, and it is this that we call vice or virtue; the most incorrigible vice being that of an ignorance which fancies it knows everything and therefore claims for itself the right to kill. There can be no true goodness, nor true love, without the utmost clear-sightedness.
