Wood is a Pleasant Thing to Think About

"Here is something definite, something
real. Thus, waking from a
midnight dream of horror, one hastily
turns on the light and lies
quiescent, worshiping the chest of
drawers, worshiping solidity,
worshiping reality, worshiping the im-
personal world which is a proof of some
existence other than ours. That is what
one wants to be sure of .... Wood is a
pleasant thing to think about."

"The Mark on the Wall"
Virginia Woolf
