Virginia Woolf
“I lie back. It seems as if the whole world were flowing and curving — on the earth the trees, in the sky the clouds. I look up, through the trees, into the sky. The clouds lose tufts of whiteness as the breeze dishevels them. If that blue could stay for ever; if that hole could remain for ever; if this moment could stay for ever.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

George Eliot
“Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.”
George Eliot, Impressions of Theophrastus Such

Virginia Woolf
“I went from one to the other holding my sorrow - no, not my sorrow but the
incomprehensible nature of this our life - for their inspection. Some people go
to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends, I to my own heart, I to seek among
phrases and fragments something unbroken - I to whom there is no beauty
enough in moon or tree; to whom the touch of one person with another is all,
yet who cannot grasp even that, who am so imperfect, so weak, so
unspeakably lonely.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Virginia Woolf
“Let us again pretend that life is a solid substance, shaped like a globe, which we turn about in our fingers. Let us pretend that we can make out a plain and logical story, so that when one matter is despatched—love for instance—we go on, in an orderly manner, to the next. ”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

António Lobo Antunes
“Morrer é quando há um espaço a mais na mesa afastando as cadeiras para disfarçar, percebe-se o desconforto da ausência porque o quadro mais à esquerda e o aparador mais longe, sobretudo o quadro mais à esquerda e o buraco do primeiro prego, em que a moldura não se fixou, à vista, fala-se de maneira diferente esperando uma voz que não chega, come-se de maneira diferente, deixando uma porção na travessa de que ninguém se serve, os cotovelos vizinhos deixam de impedir os nossos e faz-nos falta que impeçam os nossos”
António Lobo Antunes, Não é Meia Noite Quem Quer
