Who is afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Quotes from one of my most adored writers.-Gabriela Y.

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

Life is not a series of gig lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a semi-transparent envelope surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end.
-Virginia Woolf

Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.
-Virginia Woolf

The man who is aware of himself is henceforward independent; and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with a profound yet temperate happiness.
-Virginia Woolf

Nothing has really happened until it has been recorded.
-Virginia Woolf
