On [:] Someone else | Michel Foucault, 1982

Douglas Coupland

“I don’t feel that it is necessary to know exactly what I am. The main interest in life
and work is to become 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 that 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 what will be the end”.

Michel Foucault
