""This great book," "this worthless book," the same book is called by both names. Praise and blame alike mean nothing. No, delightful as the pastime of measuring may be, it is the most futile of all occupations, and to submit to the decrees of the measurers the most servile of attitudes. So as long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say."
— Virginia Woolf (via eatbreatheread)
