Thoughts on My Dissertation Timeline, from George Orwell

"Because to write books you need not only comfort and solitude--and solitude is never easy to attain in a working-class home--you also need peace of mind. You can't settle to anything, you can't command the spirit of hope in which anything has got to be created, with that dull evil cloud of unemployment hanging over you." -- George Orwell, The Road to Wigan Pier, Chapter V
