About this Quote

This quote by Virginia Woolf speaks with the concept that everyone has a past that is unique to them, which only they can truly comprehend it. It is like a book that is known only to them, and their pals can just read the title. This recommends that while we might have the ability to understand the general summary of somebody's past, we can never ever really know the information and the feelings that feature it. It is something that is deeply personal and can just be comprehended by the individual. This quote speaks to the idea that we should be considerate of other individuals's pasts and not try to pry into it. We need to accept that it is something that is personal and that we can just understand it from the exterior.
