Virginia Woolf | 9 Women Who Shaped Science Fiction
On 28th March 1941, 59-year-old visionary feminist writer Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) walked into the river Ouse with stones in her pockets and drowned herself. A note to her husband Leonard said: “Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. We can’t go through another of those terrible times. I can’t fight any longer. I can’t go on spoiling your life. I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been. V.”
As the first year of the World War I centenary continues, the OUPblog has assembled a selection of classic literature inspired by the conflict. These texts emotionally and truthfully convey an unflinching expression of the horrors of the First World War, both for those in the thick of the battles and those left behind at home.

Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky was born Nov. 11th in the Mariinsky hospital in Moscow, Russia in 1821. “Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.” ― Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
Aforismi e citazioni di Feodor Dostoevskij
Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821–1881), Russian writer of novels, short stories and essays. His works explore human psychology in the troubled political, social and spiritual context of 19th-century Russian society. Best known works are Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, The Possessed, and The Brothers Karamazov. This is my all time favorite author. I read his books over and over again and get something new from each reading.

Absolutely wonderful. Through my childhood I actually made it a point to memorize entire Dr. Seuss books. What an unmatchable contribution he made to children's literature.
Doctor Seuss is the best selling children's book author of all time.

"There are times, however, and this is one of them, when even being right feels wrong. What do you say, for instance, about a generation that has been taught that rain is poison and sex is death? If making love might be fatal and if a cool spring breeze on any summer afternoon can turn a crystal blue lake into a puddle of black poison right in front of your eyes, there is not much left except TV and relentless masturbation. It’s a strange world. Some people get rich and others eat shit and die." — Hunter S. Thompson (Generation of Swine: Tales of Shame and Degradation in the ‘80’s)
