I still write

“I still write. What else can I do? It is my habit and it is also my profession. For a long while I treated my pen as my sword: now I realise how helpless we are. It does not matter. I am still writing, I shall write books; they are needed; they have use all the same. Culture saves nothing and nobody, nor does it justify. But it is a product of man (sic), he projects himself through it and recognises himself in it; this critical mirror does show him his image.”

Jean-Paul Sartre, Words, (1967:157).

Not my words but I share the sentiment…..
