“There are gentle souls who would pronounce Lolita meaningless because it does not teach them anything. I am neither a reader nor a writer of didactic fiction…For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm.” — Vladimir Nabokov

"This the queen. She’s smart, she’s fierce. She move any way she want, as far as she want. And she, is the go get shit done piece."

The fuckin best.
