In particular, is the below question on-topic?

The quote "Always go too far, because that's where you'll find the truth" has been attributed to Albert Camus in various places on the internet. For example, this one:

a picture of Camus alongside a black area with "Always go too far, because that's where you'll find the truth. - Albert Camus - AZ Quotes" written

However user @verbose in Literature SE has an answer in depth explaining why it can't be from Camus. I wonder then who would likely to say this quote?

I would say that such a question should be allowed because it is on its face a question about the history of philosophy. What better place to ask about what Camus or Husserl said than Philosophy Stack Exchange? But I believe in the broader vision of philosophy and am at odds with other contributors who don't favor the use of editorial discretion. If you find otherwise, you might avoid downvotes/closure by simply asking what does the quotation means with adequate context.
