Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#3. I'm going to come back to West Virginia when this is over. There's something ancient and deeply-rooted in my soul. I like to think that I have left my ghost up one of those hollows, and I'll never really be able to leave for good until I find it.

Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#5. The problem of space remained, she thought, taking up her brush again. It glared at her. The whole mass of the picture was poised upon that weight. Beautiful and bright it should be on the surface, feathery and evanescent, one colour melting into another like the colours on a butterfly's wing; but beneath the fabric must be clamped together with bolts of iron. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#6. Theories then are dangerous things. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#7. But beauty was not everything. Beauty had this penalty - it came too readily, came too completely. It stilled life - froze it. One forgot the little agitations; the flush, the pallor, some queer distortion, some light or shadow, which made the face unrecognisable for a moment and yet added quality one saw for ever after. It was simpler to smooth that all out under the cover of beauty. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#8. And she came in from the little room. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#9. Over the years I have developed a picture of what a human being living humanely is like. She is a person who understand, values and develops her body, finding it beautiful and useful; a person who is real and is willing to take risks, to be creative, to manifest competence, to change when the situation calls for it, and to find ways to accommodate to what is new and different, keeping that part of the old that is still useful and discarding what is not. - Author: Virginia Satir
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Satir
#10. How curiously one is changed by the addition, even at a distance, of a friend.
How useful an office one's friends perform when they recall us. Yet how
painful to be recalled, to be mitigated, to have one's self adulterated, mixed up,
become part of another. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#11. Thought Clarissa Dalloway, what a morning - fresh as if issued to children on a beach. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#12. There is no mark on the wall to measure the precise height of women. There are no yard measures neatly divided into the fractions of an inch that one can lay against the qualities of a good mother or the devotion of a daughter or fidelity of a sister or the capacity of a housekeeper. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#13. One should be a painter. As a writer, I feel the beauty, which is almost entirely colour, very subtle, very changeable, running over my pen, as if you poured a large jug of champagne over a hairpin. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#14. I enjoy almost everything. Yet I have some restless searcher in me. Why is there not a discovery in life? Something one can lay hands on and say "This is it"? My depression is a harassed feeling. I'm looking: but that's not it - that's not it. What is it? And shall I die before I find it? - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#15. Unpraised, I find it hard to start writing in the morning; but the dejection lasts only 30 minutes, and once I start I forget all about it. One should aim, seriously, at disregarding ups and downs; a compliment here, a silence there;[ ... ] the central fact remains stable, which is the fact of my own pleasure in the art. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#16. The ghost of a roar of laughter came out to them, and was drowned at once in the wind. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#17. You wish to be a poet; you wish to be a lover. But the splendid clarity of your intelligence, and the remorseless honestly of your intellect bring you to a halt. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#18. In the vast catastrophe of the European war our emotions had to be broken up for us, and put at an angle from us, before we could allow ourselves to feel them in poetry or fiction. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#19. If I can send you a sign, I will. - Author: Virginia Aird
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Aird
#20. Often, when an elephant has just died, other elephants will back up to touch its carcass gently with their hind feet, then cover the body with dirt and sticks, and stand guard. (Intriguingly, elephants have done the same to the bodies of people that they either find dead or have killed. One young orphaned elephant in a South African sanctuary shrieked and moaned when it discovered the buried remains of its daily companion, a rhinoceros, that poachers had killed for its horn.) Chimpanzees, gorillas, some corvids, and dolphins also spend time with their dead, but overall, most species do not.* - Author: Virginia Morell
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Morell
#21. There is a somewhat time-worn joke about people taking up library work because they like to read : the joke consisting of the fact that librarians have so little time to read. But, I tell you, those who do not, and there are some, are in the wrong profession. - Author: Mary Virginia Provines
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Mary Virginia Provines
#22. You get older and you are a whole mess of things, new thoughts, sorry feelings, big plans, enormous doubts, goling along hoping and getting disappointed, over and over again, no wonder I don't recognize my little crayon picture. It appears to be me and it is and it is not. - Author: Virginia Euwer Wolff
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Euwer Wolff
#23. Why is fear part of earth life? Perhaps our Heavenly Father's greatest hope is that through our fears we may choose to turn to Him. The uncertainties of earth life can help to remind each of us that we are dependent on Him. But that reminder is not automatic. It involves our agency. We must choose to take our fears to Him, choose to trust Him, and choose to allow Him to direct us. We must make these choices when what we feel most inclined to do is to rely more and more on our own frantic and often distorted thinking. - Author: Virginia H. Pearce
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia H. Pearce
#24. She blows kisses to the one who danced through her dreams and leaves a trail of moon dust on her heart... - Author: Virginia Alison
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Alison
#25. A West Virginia 10 is a California 4. Or at least that's what legend tells us: The Legend of Dr. Feelgood. Plastic surgery has a permanent home here, which is why Nancy Pelosi loves our Botoxed beaches. Beverly Hills looks like a moving Madame Tussauds. - Author: Ben Shapiro
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Ben Shapiro
#26. I begin to long for some little language such as lovers use, broken words, inarticulate words, like the shuffling of feet on pavement. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#27. Researches still don't have an explanation for the differnece between the sizes of dogs' and wolves' brains - or for why every species of domesticated animal, from ducks and geese to horses and pigs, also has a smaller brain than its wild ancestor. The reason or reasons domestication always leads to smaller brains are hotly debated; but the effects are universal. Anthropologists have documented the same change in Homo sapiens: the brains of modern humans have shrunk about 10 percent over the last ten thousand years. - Author: Virginia Morell
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Morell
#28. I grew up in rural Oregon in a log house with bark left on inside and out. We had no electricity, a massive stone fireplace, a grand piano, and tons of books. - Author: Virginia Euwer Wolff
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Euwer Wolff
#29. It seems that a profound, impartial, and absolutely just opinion of our fellow-creatures is utterly unknown. Either we are men, or we are women. Either we are cold, or we are sentimental. Either we are young, or growing old. In any case life is but a procession of shadows, and God knows why it is that we embrace them so eagerly, and see them depart with such anguish, being shadows. And why, if this
and much more than this is true
why are we yet surprised in the window corner by a sudden vision that the young man in the chair is of all things in the world the most real, the most solid, the best known to us
why indeed? For the moment after we know nothing about him.
Such is the manner of our seeing. Such the conditions of our love. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#30. Scientists at the University of Georgia recently discovered that rats are self-aware and capable of something like introspection - complex - Author: Virginia Morell
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Morell
#31. She was feeling reckless; nothing that she did mattered. She walked to the window and twitched the curtain apart. There were the stars pricked in little holes in the blue-black sky. There was a row of chimney-pots against the sky. Then the stars. Inscrutable, eternal, indifferent - those were the words; the right words. But I don't feel it, she said, looking at the stars. So why pretend to? What they're really like, she thought, screwing up her eyes to look at them, is little bits of frosty steel. And the moon - there it was - is a polished dish-cover. But she felt nothing, even when she had reduced moon and stars to that. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#32. He could add something to the list of things you weren't supposed to do. Don't get hurt, don't get dirty, don't get drunk, don't get scared, don't count on it. You ended up doing all of them. - Author: Virginia Euwer Wolff
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Euwer Wolff
#33. Knitting her reddish-brown hairy stocking, with her head outlined absurdly by the gilt frame, the green shawl which she had tossed over the edge of the frame, and the authenticated masterpiece by Michael Angelo, Mrs. Ramsay smoothed out what had been harsh in her manner a moment before, raised his head, and kissed her little boy on the forehead. "Let us find another picture to cut out," she said. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#34. Of Virginia Woolf: The talent of this generation which is most certain of survival. - Author: Rebecca West
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Rebecca West
#35. It was the present moment. No one need wonder that Orlando started, pressed her hand to her heart, and turned pale. For what more terrifying revelation can there be than that it is the present moment? - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#36. When I was in college, I wanted to be editor of 'Reason' when I grew up. It was an impractical ambition, especially since the magazine was located in Santa Barbara, way off any journalist's normal career path. - Author: Virginia Postrel
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Postrel
#37. [On Virginia Woolf] Craving to be set free from her egomania by something or someone stronger and altogether dissimilar from herself, she speculated endlessly upon the unknown: and for her the unknown was frequently the commonplace. - Author: Michael Holroyd
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Michael Holroyd
#38. He was drowned, he used to say, and lying on a cliff with gulls screaming over him. He would look over the edge of the sofa down into the sea. Or he was hearing music ... But "Lovely!" he used to cry and the tears would run down his cheeks, which was to her the most dreadful thing of all, to see a man like Septimus, who had fought, who was brave, crying. And he would lie listening until suddenly he would cry that he was falling down, down into the flames! - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#39. In a media culture, we not only judge strangers by how they look but by the images of how they look. So we want attractive pictures of our heroes and repulsive images of our enemies. - Author: Virginia Postrel
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Postrel
#40. Jealousy ... survives every other passion of mankind ... - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
#41. He had decided before the accident not to chase them anymore, but the circumstances of the accident made him fear for Lilia's safety. he would never bring her in, not anymore; all he wanted now was to watch over her. Michaela had been reading his notes for years, but his notes were only part of it: the other part was the way he woke up at night in his bed in Montreal and knew where Lilia was, the way he could glance at a map of the United Staes and realize with absolute, inexplicable certainty that she was in West Virginia, the way he tried to ignore his terrifying clairvoyance and forget where she was and couldn't, the way he knew where she was but had to keep driving south to check, the horror of always being right: he saw her face in the crowd on Sunset Boulevard, he stepped into a hardware store in St. Louis at the moment she stepped out of the deli across the street, he stood on a corner in a run-down neighborhood in Chicago and watched her emerge from an apartment building down the block. After each sighting he returned north more depleted, more frightened, less intact. - Author: Emily St. John Mandel
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Emily St. John Mandel
#42. Our apparitions, the things you know us by, are simply childish. Beneath it is all dark, it is all spreading, it is unfathomably deep; but now and again we rise to the surface and that is what you see us by. - Author: Virginia Woolf
Pinnace Virginia quotes by Virginia Woolf
