It's Virginia Woolf's birthday. Better even than to hear how her voice sounded is to hear what her words say:
"Think of what it would mean if you could teach, of if you could learn, the art of writing."
"Do we write better, do we read better than 400 years ago when we were unlettered, uncriticized, untaught?"
"To lay down any laws for such irreclaimable vagabonds [as words] is worse than useless"
