Lines From Virginia Woolf


Lines from English writer Adeline Virginia Woolf.


"I am in the mood to dissolve in the sky."

"My brain hums with the scraps of poetry and madness."

"So with the lamps all put out, the moon sunk, and a thin rain drumming on the roof, a down pouring of immense darkness began."

"Read a thousand books and your words will flow like a river."

"I desired always to stretch the night and fill it fuller and fuller with dreams."

"What matters is precisely this; the unspoken at the edge of the spoken."

"I am made and remade continually. Different people draw different words from me." 

"When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don't seem to matter very much, do they?"

"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."

"I feel all shadows of the universe multiplied deep inside my skin."
