Jan 25, 1882 – Mar 28, 1941

One of my favorite authors, Virginia Woolf died 75 years ago today.  Adeline Virginia Woolf  had seven siblings, she married Clive Bell in 1907 and Leonard Woolf in 1912.  I have read everything possibly written by Virginia Woolf she has been an inspiration to me and my writing. 

My favorite quotes by Virginia Woolf:

“These are the soul’s changes. I do not believe in aging. I believe in forever-altering one’s aspect to the sun. Hence my optimism.”

“Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.”

 

 

Thank you and R.I.P Virginia Woolf

    Elizabeth, so glad to see your Home page restored. I hope you were able to save all your incredible writings and paintings! Virginia Woolf is one of my absolute most favorite writers as well. I collect classic American/British Literature. She is well represented.

      She live in a time that I wish for…independent yet troubled. I find that most writers walk the edge most times. Thank you for stopping by…..E
