Quote du jour/Virginia Woolf

Seeing a lovely copy of Virginia Woolf's A Writer's Diary over at dovegreyreader scribbles prompted me to take my Signet Classics $1.25 paperback off the shelf and look through it a while. On February 18, 1922, she wrote in her diary:

I've made up my mind that I am not going to be popular.

I'm just shaking my head.

  1. I adore that quote!! I don't know very much about Virginia Woolf, but this may prompt me to seek out her diaries. I definitely must use this quote somewhere in my "artwork" though!!! Love it!

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
