Thoughts to reflect on

1. "A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity."

2. "All language is but a poor translation."

3. "By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired."

4. "Writing is utter solitude, the descent into the cold abyss of oneself."

5. "It's only because of their stupidity that they're able to be so sure of themselves."

6. "He is terribly afraid of dying because he hasn't yet lived."

7. "I usually solve problems by letting them devour me."
