Virginia Woolf

When, however, one reads of a witch being ducked, of a woman possessed by devils, of a wise woman selling herbs, or even a very remarkable man who had a mother, then I think we are on the track of a lost novelist, a suppressed poet . . . indeed, I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.  - Virginia Woolf

As a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world. - Virginia Woolf

We are nauseated by the sight of trivial personalities decomposing in the eternity of print. - Virginia Woolf

The first duty of a lecturer: to hand you after an hour's discourse a nugget of pure truth to wrap up between the pages of your notebooks, and keep on the mantlepiece forever. - Virginia Woolfe

If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people. - Virginia Woolfe
