The greatness of Google

I’m working feverishly to finish my book manuscript (a September 1 deadline looms) and couldn’t find a phrase I wanted: at some point in the thirties, I know, Virginia Woolf wrote “Thinking is my fighting.” But when? How could I find it quickly?

That’s when you see what is great and greater about google. I just put the phrase and Woolf’s name in, and up pops this link, to a book review from five years ago in the Times and I can quickly cross check it with my edition of the diary and be done.
