When you compete with Shakespeare there’s only going to be one winner….Virginia Woolf Quotes for writers (and anyone who likes quotes)

Virginia Woolf on ShakespeareI read Shakespeare directly I finished writing. When my mind is agape and redhot. Then it is astonishing. I never yet knew how amazing his stretch and speed and word-coining power is, until I felt it utterly outpace and outrace my own, seeming to start equal and then I see him draw ahead and do things I could not in my wildest tumult and upmost press of mind imagine.
