What is friction ?

Love the decorative book shelf panels at a recent book fair at Suntec City, Singapore. They highlighted quotes on friction by famous authors such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Paul Therouse, Dorothy Allison and Virginia Woolf.

"A woman must have money and a room of her own if she were to write friction." This quote by Virginia Woolf reflected the status of the women of her time in 1929. Taken from her extended essay A Room of One's Own , it reflected a feminist point of view and a push for freedom for women writers in a literary world dominated by men. 

Love another quote of hers that I can relate very well to.
" One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. "
