Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf. Get out as early as you can, and don't have any kids yourself.
Deprivation is for me what daffodils were for Wordsworth.


It certainly inspired him to write some of the simplest and most beautiful poetry in the English language. Who else but this old misery guts could discern that spring’s “greenness is a kind of grief”?

Virginia Woolf's great novel "To The Lighthouse" was published #onthisday 5th May 1927.
