What to write in diaries

This is Thomas Mann, a famous German writer who wrote in his diary every day for over 60 years.

The three most important entries are:

"Worried about small cracks in the ivory knob of the new walking stick"

About his sister's suicide: "an almost not at all lamentable event"

Last entry before his death "Shall sit some in the chair today."
