speaking of camus

can't find it. But I recall, not sure how acurate, the stranger telling himself he should have payed attention and read about death by guillotine when he was imprisoned to meet it.

ah found it:
"This problem of a loophole obsesses me; I am always wondering if there have
been cases of condemned prisoners’ escaping from the implacable machinery of
justice at the last moment, breaking through the police cordon, vanishing in the nick
of time before the guillotine falls. Often and often I blame myself for not having
given more attention to accounts of public executions. One should always take an
interest in such matters. There’s never any knowing what one may come to. Like
everyone else I’d read descriptions of executions in the papers. But technical books
dealing with this subject must certainly exist; only I’d never felt sufficiently
interested to look them up. And in these books I might have found escape stories.
Surely they’d have told me that in one case, anyhow, the wheels had stopped; that
once, if only once, in that inexorable march of events, chance or luck had played a
happy part. Just once! In a way I think that single instance would have satisfied me."

I think this has come to my mind in the sense that one might find oneself stripped off tools or find useless all s/he's developed when presented under untrodden fatal circumstances (I don't mean fatal exclusively for death and I don't mean it exclusively for a passive person)
