The Invention of Solitude

“He wants to say. That is to say, he means. As in the French, ‘vouloir dire,’ which means, literally, to want to say, but which means, in fact, to mean. He means to say what he wants. He wants to say what he means. He says what he wants to mean. He means what he says”

Från The Invention of Solitude, Paul Auster 1982
