An Appreciation of the Quintessential

6 notes

It was one of those evenings when men feel that truth, goodness and beauty are one. In the morning, when they commit their discovery to paper, when others read it written there, it looks wholly ridiculous.
Aldous Huxley (via pollgold)

An interesting point made at a lecture…which is unusual…the first image (often used in the UK for advertising) is not Virginia Woolf…it’s Virginia Stephens ….Virginia press-ganged into Victorian dress before any books were written…the second photo is the full Woolf…full of experience, living the life of letters.
