Es­sayer is the French verb mean­ing “to try” and an es­sai is an at­tempt. An es­say is some­thing you write to try to figure some­thing out… In a real es­say, you don’t take a po­si­tion and defend it. You no­tice a door that’s ajar, and you open it and walk in to see what’s in­side.” —Paul Graham
