Quotes : Rebecca West

“If one is a woman writer there are certain things one must do. First, not be too good; second, die young. What an edge Katherine Mansfield has on all of us; third, commit suicide like Virginia Woolf. To go on writing and writing well just can’t be forgiven.

Rebecca West, in a letter to a friend (1952)
