"…and I looked and looked at her, and knew as clearly as I know I am to die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth, or hoped for anywhere else."
Humbert Humbert in Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov (via dontbeajerkjessy)
"I knew I had fallen in love with Lolita forever; but I also knew she would not be forever Lolita."
Lolita - Vladimir Nabokov. (via ramirezbundydahmer)
"And I shall be dumped where the weed decays. And the rest is rust and stardust."
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita. (via ramirezbundydahmer)
"Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks. She was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always Lolita."
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita. (via ramirezdahmerbundy)
