Wow! Those are 3 heavy hitters there. It’s interesting that they all share a birthday. Thanks!
I know, right?
This morning I phoned a friend to wish her happy birthday. I didn’t know then that she shared the day with such illustrious people. Next time I phone I’ll let her know.
She definitely shares a birthday with some literary heavyweights!
Thank you, thank you!
Gotta love the aquarians 🙂
Some of my best friends are aquarians, including my baby brother!
Are you a libra?
Nope. I am a Cancer.
As an Aquarian, I’ve been lucky enough to have been surrounded by Cancers–mother, father, two best friends—-Cancer’s are some of the dearest people I know.
You are lucky indeed! Haha!
I am one of three Cancers in my family. Our birthdays are within six days of each other. Our birthday celebration is always so much fun!
that’s the 3rd time we’ve heard that quote from Virginia this week.
we have a great deal of peace right now.
does that mean we’re avoiding Life?
The universe is trying to tell you something, perhaps? 🙂
It is not my favourite VW quote (or even close), but I knew that people would like it so I went with it just the same…
it is rather good.
but this is our favo(u)rite 😉
Virginia Woolf — ‘One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.’
I’ve always loved that one. ‘Tis true, ’tis true!

I know this is shallow, considering others are waxing eloquent about these literary giants…but…I love Maugham’s attire, especially his tie pin and wristwatch.
It is not shallow at all. I do a writerly style feature on here, after all! I love a well-turned out writer!
