The Mind and the Fountain Pen

"Also I wish to add to my collection of valuable observations upon the true nature of human life. My book will certainly run to many volumes, embracing every known variety of man and woman. I fill my mind with whatever happens to be the contents of a room or a railway carriage as one fills a fountain pen in an ink pot."

Virginia Woolf, The Waves, fist published 1931.
