The Hours。

Leonard Woolf - It was done for you! It was done for your betterment. It was done out of love! If I didn't know you better, I'd call this ingratitude.

Virginia Woolf - I am ungrateful? You call me ungrateful? My life has been stolen from me. Living in a town I have no wish to live in. I'm living a life I have no wish to live. How did this happen? It is time for us to move back to London. I miss London. I miss London life.

Leonard Woolf - This is not you speaking Virginia. This is an aspect of your illness.

Virginia Woolf - It is my voice. It is mine and mine alone. It is not. It is MINE. I'm dying in this town.

Leonard Woolf - If you were thinking clearly Virginia you will recall it was London that brought you low.

Virginia Woolf - If I were thinking clearly...

Leonard Woolf - I would report you to Richmond, to give you peace.

Virginia Woolf - If I were thinking clearly Leonard, then I would tell you that I wrestle alone in the dark, in the deep dark and only I can know, only I can understand my own condition. You live with the threat, you tell me you live with the threat of my extinction, Leonard I live with it too. This is my right, 'tis the right of every human being. I choose not the suffocating anesthetic of the suburbs but the violent jolt of the capital, that is my choice. The meanest patient, yes even the very lowest is allowed some say in the matter of her own prescription. There by she defines her humanity. I wish for your sake Leonard I could be happier in this quietness, but if it is a choice between Richmond and death, I choose death.
