Famous quotes containing the words virginia woolf, woolf and/or virginia:

    Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradles. And how can we generate this imponderable quality, which is yet so invaluable most quickly? By thinking that other people are inferior to oneself.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Who shall measure the heat and violence of the poet’s heart when caught and tangled in a woman’s body?
    —Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Being blunt with your feelings is very American. In this big country, I can be as brash as New York, as hedonistic as Los Angeles, as sensuous as San Francisco, as brainy as Boston, as proper as Philadelphia, as brawny as Chicago, as warm as Palm Springs, as friendly as my adopted home town of Dallas, Fort Worth, and as peaceful as the inland waterway that rubs up against my former home in Virginia Beach.
    Martina Navratilova (b. 1956)
