Scrivere Sempre (Always Write) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and
even sickened by human behavior. You’re by no means alone on that score, you’ll be excited and stimulated
to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of
them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer,
someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”

— from The Catcher In The Rye by J. D. Salinger
