Famous quotes by virginia woolf:

    This is not ‘writing’ at all. Indeed, I could say that Shakespeare surpasses literature altogether, if I knew what I meant.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    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 (1882–1941)

    Now, aged 50, I’m just poised to shoot forth quite free straight & undeflected my bolts whatever they are.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    This soul, or life within us, by no means agrees with the life outside us. If one has the courage to ask her what she thinks, she is always saying the very opposite to what other people say.
