“My belief is that if we…have five hundred (pounds) a year and rooms of our own; if we have the habit of freedom and the courage to write exactly what we think; if we…see human beings…in relation to reality; and the sky, too, and the trees…then the opportunity will come and the dead poet who was Shakespeare’s sister will put on the body which she has so often laid down.”

Excerpt from Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own (1929)
