“She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on. She had a perpetual sense, as she watched the taxi cabs, of being out, out, far out to sea and alone; she always had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day.”
–Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway
How any times have I repeated this quotation to myself? Countless. Virginia Woolf! I love her work so much that sometimes I can hardly bear to read it.
