" In this book, his father had written as an inscription & directive, write what you want. every day, or as often as you can, write what you want. that way, whenever you’re confused or rudderless, you can look to this book, & be reminded where you want to go & what you’re looking for…this journal was for positive wants, not negative wants. when you wanted something negative, it didn’t count, he said. a want should be positive, his father had said. a want should improve your life while improving the world, even if just a little bit."
- Dave Eggers, The wild things
