Here are Virgina Woolf’s top ten greatest quotes:
For most of history, Anonymous was a woman.
Arrange whatever pieces come your way.
When you consider things like the stars, our affairs don’t seem to matter very much, do they?
The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.
You cannot find peace by avoiding life.
I am made and remade continually. Different people draw different words from me.
One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.
I am rooted, but I flow.
Blame it or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us.
Thank you Virginia Woolf!
