8. "Poteva essere se stessa, starsene per conto suo. Ed era proprio questa la cosa di cui in quel periodo sentiva spesso il bisogno: pensare, o meglio, neppure pensare. Starsene in silenzio; starsene da sola. Tutto l'essere e il fare, espansivi, luccicanti, vocali, svanivano; e ci si ripiegava, con un senso di solennità, a essere se stessi, un nucleo cuneiforme di oscurità, qualcosa di invisibile agli altri. Sebbene continuasse a lavorare a maglia e a star seduta dritta, era così che si sentiva; e questo suo io, essendosi liberato da ogni legame, era libero di compiere le più strane avventure. Quando la vita si inabissava per un attimo, il campo delle esperienze sembrava illimitato. Ed era comune a tutti questo senso di risorse illimitate, immaginava; uno dopo l'altro, lei, Lily, Augustus Carmichael, dovevano sentire che le apparenze, le cose per le quali gli altri ci riconoscono, sono semplicemente puerili."
Author: Virginia Woolf
