In celebration of International Women's Day!
A few quotes from the strong, wonderful woman we're currently reading, Virginia Woolf
A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.
A a woman I have no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.
I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without singing them, was often a woman.
If one could be friendly with women, what a pleasure - the relationship so secret and private compared with relations with men. Why not write about it truthfully?

Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size.
