Virginia Woolf
“Alone, I often fall down into nothingness. I must push my foot stealthily lest I should fall off the edge of the world into nothingness. I have to bang my head against some hard door to call myself back to the body.”
Virginia Woolf, The Waves

Ernest Hemingway
“You are so brave and quiet I forget you are suffering.”
Ernest Hemingway

“What we speak becomes the house we live in.”

Roald Dahl
“Do you wonder then that this man’s behaviour used to puzzle me tremendously? He was an ordinary clergyman at that time as well as being Headmaster, and I would sit in the dim light of the school chapel and listen to him preaching about the Lamb of God and about Mercy and Forgiveness and all the rest of it and my young mind would become totally confused. I knew very well that only the night before this preacher had shown neither Forgiveness nor Mercy in flogging some small boy who had broken the rules.
So what was it all about? I used to ask myself.
Did they preach one thing and practise another, these men of God?
And if someone had told me at the time that this flogging clergyman was one day to become the Archbishop of Canterbury, I would never have believed it.
It was all this, I think, that made me begin to have doubts about religion and even about God. If this person, I kept telling myself, was one of God’s chosen salesmen on earth, then there must be something very wrong about the whole business.”
Roald Dahl, Boy: Tales of Childhood

Henry David Thoreau
“Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them at all.”
Henry David Thoreau, A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers
