818"That beautiful mind! That was the thing. Lucid, passionate, independent, acute, proudly and incessantly nourished, eccentric for honorable reasons, sensitive for every reason, it has marked us forever. Allow it its blind spots, for it could detect pure gold. It could detect contradictory purity. In the presence of poetic fire it sent out shower of sparks on its own. It was a mind like some marvelous enchanter’s instrument." - Eudora Welty, on Virginia Woolf, from N.Y Times Book Review.
