Do what you feel the need to do

“Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has
spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether
you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. This most of all: ask
yourself in the most silent hour of your night: must I write? Dig into yourself for
a deep answer. And if this answer rings out in assent, if you meet this solemn
question with a strong, simple “I must,” then build your life in accordance with
this necessity; your while life, even into its humblest and most indifferent hour,
must become a sign and witness to this impulse.”
