"All tangled. But how bellyache? If I were untangled today, I'd be tangled again tomorrow. But it's all worth trying to understand and formulate--and one should try to write a tragedy about it so that he'll be cleared for writing a farce. Half the time I'm quite gloomy--and then I suddenly feel that it really is a privilege to go through the mill, whereat I favor maintaining the same rules that had proved discomforting."
