Subject: a mundane request for a Bourdieu quote

Sorry to bother everyone with the relatively mundane request, but I am
trying to find a quote in OTP which goes:

"It is because subjects do not, strictly speaking, know what they are doing
that what they do has more meaning than they know."

Can anyone let me know where this is in the English translation? (and have
I got it right?)

Best wishes,
