From where is this FOB quote?  I can only recall a fragment:  "It was again the beginning of the unfinished, .. , ...  very nearly unbearable."

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

I believe it is from The Third Policeman and should finish out as

He said it was again the beginning of the unfinished, the re-discovery of the familiar, the re-experience of the already suffered, the fresh-forgetting of the unremembered. Hell goes round and round. In shape it is circular and by nature it is interminable, repetitive and very nearly unbearable.

Hope that helps some!
