Virginia Woolf…comments on depression….

“It occurs to me that this state, my depressed state, is the state in which most people usually are.”

“….something very profound about the synthesis of my being: how only writing composes it: how nothing makes a whole unless I am writing: now I have forgotten what seemed so profound. The rhododendron like coloured glass mounds at Kew. Oh the agitation, oh the discomfort of this mood…”

Virginia Woolf – Diary, 1933
