Franz Kafka on Writing

“Don't bend; don't water it down; don't try to make it logical; don't edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”
“I write differently from what I speak, I speak differently from what I think, I think differently from the way I ought to think, and so it all proceeds into deepest darkness.”
“A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity.”
“I need solitude for my writing; not 'like a hermit' — that wouldn't be enough — but like a dead man.”
“Writing is utter solitude, the descent into the cold abyss of oneself.”
