 Writing like a god 

My brother posted a wonderful quote about the art of writing on his blog about a month ago. I'm going to do the brotherly thing and steal something of his that he simply left lying around, and re-post it here.

“. . . I believe in writing – nothing else; just writing. Man may live like a worm, but he writes like a god. There was a time when that secret was known, but now it has been forgotten; the world is composed of disintegrating fragments, an incoherent dark chaos, sustained by writing alone. If you have a concept of the world, if you have not forgotten all that has happened, that you have a world at all, it is writing that has created that for you, and ceaselessly goes on creating it; Logos, the invisible spider’s thread that holds our lives together.”
