Quotation: Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) Freedom of information – expression


To admit authorities, however heavily furred and gowned, into our libraries and let them tell us how to read, what to read, what value to place upon what we read, is to destroy the spirit of freedom which is the breath of those sanctuaries. Everywhere else we may be bound by laws and conventions—there we have none.

Ladislaus the Posthumous (1440)

Born four months after the death of his father, Albert II of Hapsburg, Ladislaus spent much of his childhood under the control of his powerful guardians, who refused to surrender the boy to his rightful place as king of Bohemia and Hungary.

I’ll Follow The Sun – The Beatles



One day, you’ll look
To see I’ve gone
But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun
One day, you’ll know
I was the one
But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun
And now the time has come
And so, my love, I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you will know
Oh-oh-oh
One day, you’ll find
That I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun

And now the time has come
And so, my love, I must go
And though I lose a friend
In the end you will know
Oh-oh-oh
One day, you’ll find
That I have gone
But tomorrow may rain, so
I’ll follow the sun
