"You should not... underestimate the power of the act of writing itself. I did not write until I became a doctor. But once I became a doctor, I found I needed to write. For all its complexity, medicine is more physically than intellectually taxing... But writing lets you step back and think through a problem. Even the angriest rant forces the writer to achieve a degree of thoughtfulness."
-Atul Gawande, "Better," 2007
