Residual. Dominant. Emergent.
The year Sarojini Naidu dies
Agha Shahid Ali is born.
The year Dante Gabriel Rossetti passes on
Virginia Woolf enters.
The world inters Margaret Mitchell the year
Namdeo Dhasal is born.
John Baez and Mahmoud Darwish come the year Tagore is gone.

I Know you are proud of your pure love,
But are you blessed with the same kind of love?
You never think twice before making them happy as the same way they never think twice before hurting you,
But honey what will you do with that love without believe?
I hope you know how much you need to love yourself.

Once conform, once do what other people do because they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer nerves and faculties of the soul. She becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.
― Virginia Woolf

For beyond the difficulty of communicating oneself, there is the supreme difficulty of being oneself.

My Year in Books
#25 On Reading, Writing and Living with Books
The London Library — Pushkin Press
2016
2*
Contains:
‘How Should One Read a Book?’ by Virginia Woolf
Letter from Charles Dickens to Wilkie Collins
Letter from Charles Dickens to George Eliot
‘Authorship’ by George Eliot
‘My Books’ by Leigh Hunt
‘The London Library’ by E. M. Forster
————
I expected this to be a little gem of a book with insights about reading - that line in the title, ‘living with books’, gave it promise. I thought the people who put this together knew. 
It was disappointing. The only noteworthy part is Leigh Hunt’s segment, ‘My Books’. Some phrases shine through to really touch you.
‘I entrench myself in my books equally against sorrow and the weather.’ (p. 52)
‘… if fortune turns her face once more in kindness upon me before I go, I may chance, some quiet day, to lay my overheating temples on a book, and so have the death I most envy.’ (p. 81)
