Eye of the Bookholder – Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov

Lolita - Unknown Artist

“We all have such fateful objects — it may be a recurrent landscape in one case, a number in another — carefully chosen by the gods to attract events of specific significance for us: here shall John always stumble; there shall Jane’s heart always break.”

“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.”

“He broke my heart. You merely broke my life.”

“I shall be dumped where the weed decays. And the rest is rust and stardust.”
