Sylvia Plath, Journals, July, 1953.

"Catch perspective, kid--- learn shorthand; study French: THINK CONSTRUCTIVELY -- and get some respect for yourself. ... Think. You can. You must, moreover, not continually run away while asleep -- forget details -- ignore problems -- shut up walls between you and the world and all the gay bright girls - : please, think -- snap out of this. Believe in some beneficent force beyond your own limited self. God, god, god: where are you? I want you, need you: the belief in you and love and mankind. You must not seek escape like this. You must think."
