Vita Sackville-West Quotes was a poet and novelist, who began writing poetry at the age of 11. Her best known poem is "The Land," and she's also recognized as the model for Virginia Woolf's Orlando. Here are a few quotes from Victoria Mary Sackville-West.
  • "It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? for the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. Growth is exciting; growth is dynamic and alarming. Growth of the soul, growth of the mind."
    - Victoria Sackville-West


  • "Travel is the most private of pleasures. There is no greater bore than the travel bore. We do not in the least want to hear what he has seen in Hong-Kong."
    - Victoria Sackville-West
  • "Women, like men, ought to have their youth so glutted with freedom they hate the very idea of freedom."
    - Victoria Sackville-West
