Hello everyone!

As I'm writing this article, it's 25th January, Virginia Woolf's birthday. Today marks 136 years since the day this absoluteley marvelous woman and an amazing writer was born.

And since I'm currently reading (as I always am) one of her masterpieces, A room of one's own, I decided to write down some beautiful and inspiring quotes from the book to honour Miss Woolf. This one's for all the women.

Enjoy! xx

  • "Women do not write books about men- a fact that could not help welcoming with relief, for if I had first to read all that men have written about women, then all that women have written about men, the aloe that flowers once in a hundred years would flower twice before I could set pen to paper."

  • "And it serves to explain how restless they are under her criticism; how impossible it is for her to say to them this book is bad, this picture is feeble, or whatever it may be, without giving far more pain and rousing far more anger than a man would do who gave the same critisism."

  • "I need not hate any man; he cannot hurt me. I need not flatter any man; he has nothing to give me." - This one's so so important!

  • “Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.”

  • “Then may I tell you that the very next words I read were these – ‘Chloe liked Olivia…’ Do not start. Do not blush. Let us admit in the privacy of our own society that these things sometimes happen. Sometimes women do like women.”

Forever sending my love up there to MIss Woolf. Thank you, I love you.

Yours sincerely,
