Diary - Entry 14/15

10 October 1855 I've been in a lazily apathetic, perpetually dissatisfied state for a long time now. Won another 130 roubles at cards. Bought a horse and bridle for 150. What nonsense! My career is literature - to write and write! From tomorrow I'll work all my life or throw up everything - rules, religion, propriety - everything. ~ Leo Tolstoy
