Virginia Woolf
“What she liked was simply life. "That's what i did it for," she said, speaking aloud to life... Could any man understand what she meant, either, about life? …But to go deeper, beneath what people said, and these judgments, how superficial, how fragmentary, they are. In her own mind now, what did it mean to her, this thing she called life? It was an offering…it was her gift.”
Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway
tags: joy, life

Joanne Harris
“Polite contempt. The barbed and poisonous weapon of the righteous.”
Joanne Harris, Chocolat
