Famous quotes by virginia woolf:

    We all indulge in the strange, pleasant process called thinking, but when it comes to saying, even to someone opposite, what we think, then how little we are able to convey! The phantom is through the mind and out of the window before we can lay salt on its tail, or slowly sinking and returning to the profound darkness which it has lit up momentarily with a wandering light.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Thus when I come to shape here at this table between my hands the story of my life and set it before you as a complete thing, I have to recall things gone far, gone deep, sunk into this life or that and become part of it; dreams, too, things surrounding me, and the inmates, those old half-articulate ghosts who keep up their hauntings by day and night ... shadows of people one might have been; unborn selves.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    It seems as if an age of genius must be succeeded by an age of endeavour; riot and extravagance by cleanliness and hard work.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    ‘The proper stuff of fiction’ does not exist; everything is the proper stuff of fiction, every feeling, every thought; every quality of brain and spirit is drawn upon; no perception comes amiss.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
