“And if we can imagine the art of fiction come alive and standing in our midst, she would undoubtedly bid us break her and bully her, as well as honour and love her, for so her youth is renewed and her sovereignty assured.” ― Virginia Woolf, Selected Essays [Virginia Woolf by Gisele Freund]

Virginia Woolf Reads. ("A Room of Her Own" is about writing. She is a good writer, even though I don't agree with her politics.)
Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent. — Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) English author, essayist and writer of short stories. In "Virginia Woolf: An Inner Life" Julia Briggs writes: "Orlando's giving birth to a book may be related to Woolf's own gradual acceptance of childlessness. That December (1927), at a party for her niece Angelica, she noticed, "I scarcely want children of my own now. This insatiable desire to write something before I die... makes me cling... to my one anchor."
