super profundo on the early eve of your day

“Communication in literature is not the simple appeal on the part of the writer of meanings which would be part of an a priori of the mind; rather, communication arouses these meanings in the mind through enticement and a kind of oblique action. The writer’s thought does not control his language from without; the writer is himself a kind of new idiom, constructing itself. My own words take me by surprise and teach me what I think.”

Merleau-Ponty (whom I have never read in my entire life, I swear)
