He listened without interrupting or asking any questions, and with all his soul he believed what this stranger was saying to him. Whether he was believing rational arguments coming from the mason, or trusting more like a child in the persuasive intonation, the sense of authority, the sincerity of the words spoken, the quavering voice that sometimes seemed on the verge of breaking down, or the gleaming aged eyes grown old in that conviction, or the tranquillity, the certainty and true sense of vocation radiating from the old man's whole being and striking Pierre very forcibly, given the state of his own debasement and despair – whatever was happening to him, he longed to believe with all his soul, and he did believe and he felt a joyful sense of calm, renewal and return to life."

Each shade of a flower, a face, a tree, a fruit, a sea, a mountain, is noted eagerly by the intensity of the senses to which is added, in a way of which we are not conscious, the work of the mind, and in the end the strength or weakness of the soul.

It is the strength of soul which forces the mind to constant exercise to widen its conception of space."

My engorged labia felt like they were pressing on my brain--what there was of my brain--and if I didn't get to fuck someone, something, now--a vampire would do--I was going to fucking explode. My cunt ached like a bruise.Beyond cranky, rather fortunately, doesn't transmute into embarrassment. It transmutes into fury. As my blood pressure began to rearrange itself to a more standard unengorged pattern I was seething."

"What about just now in the church?""Very well, twice.""Try again." He stacked his papers and looked up, devouring her with his intent green gaze.

What excuse can you make for that?"She stammered to form a response, her tongue tripping against her teeth. "I . . . I would never traipse." Idiotic reply."Hm." He tilted his head and regarded her thoughtfully. "Would you saunter?"

46. "I looked at some of her quilting work in progress, and having flunked home economics rather spectacularly myself, I searched for a compliment. Of course I said it was pretty, but I also said I admired the patience and skill it must take to make all those tiny stitches. I said that I've always made such a mess of it when I've tried to do anything that requires that kind of concentration. My father, interrupting my less than elegant attempt, said, "It's been my experience that people who excel at that kind of work never possess a really fine mind." He said it without a trace of rancor in his voice, as if sharing an objective piece of wisdom. He is so clever, so facile with words, that the person he has insulted not only feels insulted, but feels stupid and ashamed for feeling insulted."

Author: Virginia Woolf
