Sartre, Camus, or Louis C.K.?

It's the 110th birthday of existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre. In his honor, we present a quiz with a touch of the ridiculous.

Check out the quotes below and figure out who said them: Sartre, his fellow French philosopher Albert Camus, or modern-day comedian and kinda-nihilist Louis C.K.?

We are all "condemned to be free," as Sartre famously said, so feel free to share your results in the comments section below.

Where's the quiz?!!

I'd like to give the quiz a shot but it's not visible. Am I too late? Thanks.

so strange!

Nope, you're not too late, but I'm not sure what's wrong... I can see it fine! Are you on a phone or a computer? Can you tell me what error message you're seeing?
