"For most of history, Anonymous was a woman." Virginia Woolf


Been a long time since I blogged in my Famous Women Quotes series.

Adeline Virginia Woolf (pronounced /ˈwʊlf/; 25 January 1882 – 28 March 1941) was an English author, essayist, publisher, and writer of short stories, regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century.

Here are some of my favorites..

Virginia Woolf
