Virginia Woolf

A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.
(From her extended essay, "A Room of One's Own," which was published in 1929.  I felt very sorry for my son Nick when he told me he would have to read two Virginia Woolf novels for a high school English class.  I've been unable to finish any of her books, and I think I'm going to stop trying.)
