„I suppose everyone continues to be interested in the quest for the self, but what you feel when you’re older, I think, is that — how to express this — you really must make the self.“

—  Mary McCarthy American writer 1912 - 1989

It's absolutely useless to look for it, you won’t find it, but it’s possible in some sense to make it. Interview by Elisabeth Niebuhr in "The Paris Review Interviews: Writers at Work, Second Series" (1963) [the interview took place in March 1961]
