Absurdity is willful defiance

The absurd is when your aim does not match your strength or ability, according to Albert Camus.
To charge a wall armed only with anger is absurd.

To expect success while ignoring reality is absurd in direct proportion to the scale of your goals. A situation becomes absurd when the odds are infinitesimal, yet the individual persists.

This defiance against reality is equal parts hopeful and bravery, yet also insanity.
