He will read like a madman, with the fury and mad intensity of one who is consumed by the burning fever of knowing everything about everything.
And yes, he will write. Oh yes, he will. I will make sure he does so.
"[N]othing is as surprising as life. Except for writing. Except for writing. Yes, of course, except for writing, the only consolation."
Orhan Pamuk (The Black Book)
