Poiché nulla poteva essere più serio dell’amore di un uomo per una donna, nulla più autorevole,più imperioso, con il seme della morte nel cuore; allo stesso tempo quegli innamorati, quella gente che entrava nell’illusione con gli occhi scintillanti, dovevano essere circondati da un girotondo scherzoso, incoronati da ghirlande

La primavera senza una foglia da agitare, spoglia e luminosa come una vergine fiera della sua castità, si stese sui campi, attenta, vigile, e del tutto indifferente a quanto facesse o pensasse chi l'osservava.

L'esperienza le diceva che non si trovava mai a riposo quando si era se stessi, ma solo quando si era un nucleo di buio. Perdendo la propria personalità, si perdevano anche le preoccupazioni, la fretta, l'agitazione; e le saliva sempre alle labbra un'esclamazione di trionfo sulla vita quando le cose si raccoglievano in quella pace, in quel riposo, in quell'eternità.

La sua semplicità penetrava a fondo ciò che le persone intelligenti falsavano. La schiettezza della sua mente la faceva andar giù dritta come una pietra: la faceva posare con precisione d'un uccello, le conferiva, in modo naturale, quella capacità di afferrare al volo la verità, che deliziava, aiutava, sosteneva, forse erroneamente.

She looked at her picture. That would have been his answer, presumably-- how "you" and "I" and "she" pass and vanish; nothing stays; all changes; but not words, not paint.

Where to begin?-- that was the question; at what point to make the first mark? One line placed on the canvas committed her to innumerable risks, to frequent and irrevocable decisions. All that in idea seemed simple became in practice immediately complex; as the waves shape themselves symmetrically from the cliff top, but to the swimmer among them are divided by steep gulf, and foaming crests, Still the risk must be run; the mark made.

But she could not do it; she could not say it. Then, knowing thathe was watching her, instead of saying any thing she turned, holding her stocking, and looked at him. And as she looked at him she began to smile, for though she had not said a word, he knew, of course he knew, that she loved him. He could not deny it. And smiling she looked out of the window and said (thinking to herself, Nothing on earth can equal this happiness)--
"Yes, you were right. It's going to be wet to-morrow." She had not said it, but he knew it. And she looked at him smiling. For she had triumphed again.

[...] for that was true of Mrs. Ramsay-- she pitied men always as if they lacked something-- women never, as if they had something.

Not that she herself was "pessimistic", as he accused her of being. Only she thought life-- and a little strip of time presented itself to her eyes, her fifty years. There it was before her-- life. Life: she thought but she did not finish her thought. She took a look at life, for she had a clear sense of it there, something real, something private, which she shared neither with her children nor with her husband. A sort of transaction went on between them, in which she was on one side, and life was on another, and she was always trying to get the better of it, as it was of her; and sometimes they parleyed (when she sat alone); there were, she remembered, great reconciliation scenes; but for the most part, oddly enough, she must admit that she felt this thing that she called life terrible, hostile, and quick to pounce on you if you gave it a chance.

Yet, as the night wore on, and white lights parted the curtains, and even now and then some bird chirped in the garden, gathering a desperate courage she would urge her own exemption from the universal law; plead for it; she liked to be alone; she liked to be herself; she was not made for that [...].
