Goethe quote from Barthe's A Lover's Discourse

Just cut this line from the thesis. It’s lived through many a draft (and is now immortalized in the catalog essay being published next month) but tonight it got cut out of the thesis.

“Either woe or well-being, sometimes I have a craving to be engulfed.”

It’s what I am finding in general in my writing: At first I needed a lot of quotes from other people to develop my ideas. Now I am going back through and cutting out that scaffolding. My ideas are strong enough to stand on their own. My ideas are growing up!
