Quote from Virginia Woolf,

"To enjoy freedom, if the platitude is pardonable,
we have of course to control ourselves.
We must not squander our powers,
helplessly and ignorantly,
squirting half the house in order
to water a single rose-bush;
we must train them, exactly and powerfully,
here on the very spot."


Virginia Woolf (more quotes by Virginia Woolf or books by/about Virginia Woolf)

(1882-1941) English writer, modernist author
