Foucault

I'm slogging my way through one of my least favorite books by Michael Foucault, The Archeology of Knowledge. Just came across this quote, which was a spot of blessed clarity, amidst a stormy bathtub full of human misery.

'Discourse is not life: its time is not your time; in it, you will not be reconciled to death; you may have killed God beneath the weight of all that you have said; but don't imagine that, with all that you are saying, you will make a man that will live longer than he.'
