"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend." Those lines are perhaps the most-quoted of Albert Camus' online. They've most likely reached more people than his books have. The problem, aside from the diabolical triteness of the sentiment, is that Camus doesn't seem to have written these words.
