In a 1982 interview, French philosopher Michel Foucault remarked:
I don’t feel that it is necessary to know exactly what I am. The main interest in life and work is to becoming someone else that you were not in the beginning. If you knew when you began a book what you would say at the end, do you think you would have the courage to write it? What is true for writing and for a love relationship is true also for life. The game is worthwhile insofar as we don’t know where it will end.
