As Reading Week wears on, scenesters submit their favorite quotes from their current reading.

“My life is not a moment’s bright spark like that on the surface of a diamond. I go beneath ground torturously, as if a warder carried a lamp from cell to cell. My destiny has been that I remember and must weave together, must plait into one cable, the many threads, the thin, the thick, the broken, the enduring of our long history, of our tumultuous and varied day. There is always more to understood; a discord to be listened for; a falsity to be reprimanded.'”

Virginia Woolf, The Waves. New York: Harcourt, Inc., 1978. Pg 202.
