How Much Better is Silence

Woolf-SitByMyself-Waves

The above is a quote by one of my favourite writers, Virginia Woolf (from The Waves) and I thought I’d share it with you lovely people because I feel she understands so well what reading, as a pastime is like.

It’s meant to be a beautiful escape, and Woolf is so palpably aware of a need for this sensitivity towards wanting to sometimes separate ourselves from moments of our lives – or even moments of ourselves; the parts that are monotone, and the parts that are New York minutes, craving caffeine, elbowing through masses of strangers in public transport, speed-reading through documents and deadlines, can wait. Sometimes we just need to be reminded of us.

Sometimes we need to prioritise time and space for silence.

So, therefore, for all these reasons, I present this quote.

– Cumuloq ❤
