10 Virginia Woolf Quotes For July's Crate Launch.
Our latest book crate has launched! This month’s book box subscription is themed around Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. It’s filled to the brim with literature inspired goodies, including books (of course), tea, stationery and much more - all of them sharing the same design and aesthetic. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, here’s a look at the front cover!
This crate is selling quickly so make sure you get yours before they sell out! To celebrate the launch, and the general all round brilliance of Virginia Woolf, we thought it would be cool to share some of her best quotes with you guys (of which there are many!)
“Let us never cease from thinking—what is this ‘civilisation’ in which we find ourselves? What are these ceremonies and why should we take part in them? What are these professions and why should we make money out of them?”
“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
“Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.”
“I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.”
“The history of men’s opposition to women’s emancipation is more interesting perhaps than the story of that emancipation itself.”
“I have a deeply hidden and inarticulate desire for something beyond the daily life.”
