" . . . in my life, writing has been an important exercise to clarify what I believe, what I see, what I care about, what my deepest values are . . . the process of converting a jumble of thoughts into coherent sentences makes you ask tougher questions." --Barack Obama responding to the question, "What's the purpose of a diary?" (TIME, Dec. 31, 2012 / January 7, 2013, page 90).
