Quote by Virginia Woolf
I must try to set aside half an hour in some part of my day, and consecrate it to diary writing. Give it a name and a place, and then perhaps, such is the human mind, I shall come to think it a duty, and disregard other duties for it.
This quote reflects the importance of dedicating time for personal reflection and self-expression through the act of diary writing. By setting aside a specific time and space for this activity, the author recognizes the potential for it to become a meaningful ritual, eventually surpassing other obligations. It suggests that committing to regular introspection and documenting one's thoughts and experiences can become a priority, offering a way to nurture and engage with one's own mind.
It is comforting when one has a sorrow to lie in the warmth of one's bed and there, abandoning all effort and all resistance, to bury even one's head under the cover, giving one's self up to it completely, moaning like branches in the autumn wind. But there is still a better bed, full of divine odors. It is our sweet, our profound, our impenetrable friendship.
