    1. "Somewhat fantastical suffering, sitting in the restaurant near that vibrant little boy sitting with his parents, horrible of course, and his brother, at resigning myself to the definitive idea, on this side of death, that I will never have a son of my own, and that at the precise age at which my father was awaiting the birth of his son, me, I have only death to wait for." - pp 487If you're looking for juicy tidbits on Michel Foucault The Friend who Did Not Save My Life has more to offer.
