"Loneliness as a situation can be corrected, but as a state of mind it is an incurable illness."
"We live not only in a world of thoughts, but also in a world of things. Words without experience are meaningless."
"I looked and looked at her, and I knew, as clearly as I know that I will die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth."
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita (via feellng)
