Self--Awareness(Virginia woolf)

June 27, 2007 12:56am CST
The man who is aware of himself is henceforth independent;and he is never bored, and life is only too short, and he is steeped through and through with profound yet temperate happiness. He alone lives, while other people, slaves of ceremony, let life slip past time in a kind of dream. Once conform, once do what other people do finer than they do it, and a lethargy steals over all the finer neves and faculties of the soul, He becomes all outer show and inward emptiness; dull, callous, and indifferent.
