Quote of the Day (Virginia Woolf, on Fame’s Relative Impermanence)

“Fame lasts perhaps two thousand years. And what are two thousand years? …What, indeed, if you look from a mountain top down the long wastes of the ages? The very stone one kicks with one’s boot will outlast Shakespeare.” —Virginia Woolf, To the Lighthouse (1927)
