politics | Mar 28, 2014 | By Spero News

"There are means that cannot be excused. And I should like to be able to love my country and still love justice. I don't want just any greatness for it, particularly a greatness born of blood and falsehood. I want to keep it alive by keeping justice alive." - A quote of philosopher Albert Camus, from page 5 of his 1960 book Resistance, Rebellion, and Death.
 
 
Corita Kent, an artist who was a member of the community of the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for many years, used a part of the above quote for several of her most famous works. She was best known for a work that would become the basis of the annual 'Love' postage stamp in 1985 for the U.S. Postal Service. Born in 1918, she died in 1986.
