“Analysis is like a heavy lorry [truck] full of fine sand. Slowly, the hydraulic system raises the back so that it will empty. At first nothing falls out, then gradually a few grains, and finally the whole load slides to the ground in one go. The metaphor is too neat, reflects too obviously what I wanted to happen. I had to learn the hard way that it was not like that.”

Althusser, Louis. [1992] 1993. The Future Lasts Forever: A Memoir. New York: The New Press. [P. 152.]
