Famous quotes by virginia woolf:

    Boredom is the legitimate kingdom of the philanthropic.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    There is much to support the view that it is clothes that wear us, and not we, them; we may make them take the mould of arm or breast, but they mould our hearts, our brains, our tongues to their liking.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    A good essay must have this permanent quality about it; it must draw its curtain round us, but it must be a curtain that shuts us in, not out.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    The history of men’s opposition to women’s emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)
