J Read


"I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out; and I thought how it is worse, perhaps, to be locked in."

"For most of history, Anonymous was a woman."

"Writing is like sex. First you do it for love, then you do it for your friends, and then you do it for money."

"By hook or by crook, I hope that you will possess yourselves of money enough to travel and to idle, to contemplate the future or the past of the world, to dream over books and loiter at street corners and let the line of thought dip deep into the stream"

-— Virginia Woolf
