Meursault is weak, which is part of why he comes to be condemned on trial, and has no resources--he killed a man "because of the sun." He has no virtue: he agreed to write Raymond's letter knowing the purport and intent of it. He has no valor: "but I spoke too quickly and ran my words into each other. I was ... nonsensical, ...."
