Vladimir Nabokov
“In a nervous and slender-leaved mimosa grove at the back of their villa we found a perch on the ruins of a low stone wall. She trembled and twitched as I kissed the corner of her parted lips and the hot lobe of her ear. A cluster of stars palely glowed above us between the silhouettes of long thin leaves; that vibrant sky seemed as naked as she was under her light frock. I saw her face in the sky, strangely distinct, as if it emitted a faint radiance of its own. Her legs, her lovely live legs, were not too close together, and when my hand located what it sought, a dreamy and eerie expression, half-pleasure, half-pain, came over those childish features. She sat a little higher than I, and whenever in her solitary ecstasy she was led to kiss me, her head would bend with a sleepy, soft, drooping movement that was almost woeful, and her bare knees caught and compressed my wrist, and slackened again; and her quivering mouth, distorted by the acridity of some mysterious potion, with a sibilant intake of breath came near to my face. She would try to relieve the pain of love by first roughly rubbing her dry lips against mine; then my darling would draw away with a nervous toss of her hair, and then again come darkly near and let me feed on her open mouth, while with a generosity that was ready to offer her everything, my heart, my throat, my entrails, I gave her to hold in her awkward fist the scepter of my passion.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

E.M. Forster
“If we act the truth the people who really love us are sure to come back to us in the long run”
E.M. Forster

Vladimir Nabokov
“We loved each other with a premature love, marked by a fierceness that so often destroys adult lives.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

E.M. Forster
“Passion does not blind. No. Passion is sanity, and the woman you love, she is the only person you will ever really understand.”
E.M. Forster

E.M. Forster
“Life is easy to chronicle, but bewildering to practice.”
E.M. Forster, A Room With A View
