Stay weird, D.
And never have I felt so deeply at one and, at the same time, so detached from myself, and so present in the world.
Life is but a procession of shadows.
-Virginia Woolf, from Jacob’s Room
You’re alive only once, as far as we know, and what could be worse than getting to the end of your life and realizing you hadn’t lived it?
I feel so intensely the delights of shutting oneself up in a little world of one’s own, with pictures and music and everything beautiful.
-Virginia Woolf, The Voyage Out
You get depressed because you know that you’re not what you should be.
