Image, One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself

One day, I started writing, not knowing that I had chained myself for life to a noble but merciless master. When God hands you a gift, he also hands you a whip; and the whip is intended solely for self-flagellation… I’m here alone in my dark madness, all by myself with my deck of cards – and, of course, the whip God gave me.

Truman Capote
