Life is Elsewhere

Five or six months before i read life is elsewhere by Milan Kundera. Almost a dozen things caught my eye. The one thing that completely struck my mind is this:

"For a poem to be a poem it must be read by someone other than the auther; only then can it be proved that the poem is something more than simply a private diary in code and that it is capable of living its own life, independent of whoever has written it."

When i read something i don't use percentage term to agree or disagree any point of views. I simply agree or disagree. It's the first time in my life i get confused. i googled about this quote. No one said anything and if someone did, i didn't find any.

What you think? agree or disagree? What if you are writing all those stuff just for your own happiness?
