"Her face felt like it was scattered in pieces and she could not keep it straight. The feeling was a whole lot worse than being hungry for any dinner, yet it was like that. I want—I want—I want—was all that she could think about—but just what this real want was she did no know."
— Carson McCullers, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
I think I get it now, it goes like this: Necessity forces you to jump in the unknown before your wings are fully developed. Rebellion gives you the courage & raises badass levels in the blood. And Creativity provides the net, just as you’re about to hit the ground. (P.S. There is no ground).

"I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money. I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down." — The point of writing for Jack Kerouac
