thoughts on time: the future is a book & the book is never written

Every written work can be regarded as the prologue (or rather, the broken cast) of a work never penned, and destined to remain so, because later works, which in turn will be the prologues or the moulds for other absent works, represent only sketches or death masks. 

— from Giorgio Agamben, Infancy and History
