Eloquent, profoundly melancholic, intelligent and deeply wise, sentimental and provocative yet always raw in terms of emotion, Virginia Woolf was a woman entirely ahead of her time. This is made with much love and respect in her memory.
But what is worth of my opinion? Nothing. So, I sit in my lodge and look, like a child of three, at a bird; at a flower; at a butterfly. There was a butterfly, in spite of the raging wind.
Virginia Woolf, from a letter to Ethel Smyth dated 29 March 1934.64 notes
