He smiled the most exquisite smile, veiled by memory, tinged by dreams.
Virginia Woolf

Love, the poet said, is woman's whole existence.
Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf

He turned from the sight of human ignorance and human fate and the sea eating the ground we stand on, which, had he been able to contemplate it fixedly might have led to something; and found consolation in trifles so slight compared with the august theme just now before him that he was disposed to slur that comfort over, to deprecate it, as if to be caught happy in a world of misery was for an honest man the most despicable of crimes.
Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf
