That's how he starts his "L'Homme Révolté", in which he explains why despite the fact that he finds the existence itself to be absurd, he chooses life.
Also, in the last line of "Le Mythe de Sisyphe" he concludes - "One must imagine Sisyphus happy."

I decided long ago that life is not worth living, and I'm not going to stay here long. But while I'm here, I'll try to make it worthwhile.
