But why, then, do you Write?

A : I do not belong to those who think with the wet pen in hand ; and still less to those who yield themselves entirely to their passions before the open ink bottle, sitting on their chair and staring at the paper.  I am always vexed and abashed by writing ; writing is a necessity for me, even to speak of it in a simile is unpleasant.  B : But why, then, do you write?  A : Well, my dear Sir, to tell you in confidence, I have hitherto found no other means of getting rid of my thoughts.  B : And why do you wish to get rid of them?  A : Why I wish?  Do I really wish!  I must B : Enough!  Enough!
