On Whether or Not to Believe in Your Mind

“I have often experienced the fact that no matter how difficult or how wonderful things get there is always some expression that is made. The world goes on carelessly unfolding. For me this expression takes the temporary form I call writing, and it seems to possess a redemptive quality, a purifying property, which brings me back, cheers me up, time after time. One way or another, there is nothing quite like it. Nor is there anything else but it.” — Geoffrey Young, from the Preface
