"I, on the other hand, am writing for myself alone, and declare once and for all that, even if I write as though I were addressing the readers, I do it merely for form's sake, because it is easier for me to write like that. It's nothing but a device, an empty device. As for readers, I will never have any. I have already said so... And also this: why, actually, do I want to write at all? If not for an audience, then couldn't I simply go over everything just in my mind, instead of putting it on paper?

"You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks.
