Why writing matters

"That is what writing is - telling what you think. Telling other people certainly, but primarily telling yourself. And that is why we must write - to find out what we think, to discover what we believe.
Because until we write it down, we don't know what is actually at the root of our lives."

More good stuff from George Sheehan. I am currently reading Personal Best, written at the start of the nineties and mostly on the philosophy of running. I am not usually drawn to writing about sport but this book, really a collection of essays, is great.
