Virginia Woolf.

I've been reading Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own on the subway home from work. 
I so admire her wise words
and the emotions that she articulates in ways that make you feel as if you were experiencing them for the first time.

"I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in."

    1. Rachael - loved Mrs Dalloway. She has a really beautiful way of capturing the social moors and changing gender biases in that book! Didn't love The Hours because I thought it strayed from some of her intent for the sake of modern appeal - I understand that, but I don't love it :)
