“To this, only one reply: ultimately, you know nothing about it.
…You will never really know this part of yourself which compels you to write. You will know it only through contradictory forms which merely approach it. Egotism or devotion? Cruelty or compassion? Any of these possibilities could be argued for. Proof that, ultimately, you know nothing about it; thus, do not behave as you did. Before your own ignorance, before this mysterious part of yourself, remain honest and humble.”

—Michel Houellebecq
