You can never really know a person. If you think you can,
you’re living in a fucking dream world.

"I’m sure that Egg is a very nice person, I just don’t want you spending all your money getting her all glittered up for Easter."

- Michael Bluth, Arrested Development.
"I’m seventeen. Looking at linoleum makes me wanna have sex."

- Xander Harris, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
"A man’s face is his autobiography. A woman’s face is her work of fiction."

- Oscar Wilde.
"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. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for a fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns…"

- Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita.
"And she was mine, she was mine, the key was in my fist, my fist was in my pocket, she was mine."

- Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita.
"He broke my heart. You merely broke my life."

- Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita.
"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. She was only the dead-leaf echo of the nymphet from long ago - but I loved her, this Lolita, pale and polluted and big with another man’s child. She could fade and wither - I didn’t care. I would still go mad with tenderness at the mere sight of her face."

- Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita.
"Life doesn’t imitate art, it imitates bad television."

- Woody Allen.
"Play it fuckin’ loud!"

- Bob Dylan.
"Life isn’t divided into genres. It’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you’re lucky."

- Alan Moore.
"Millions of books written on every conceivable subject by all these great minds and in the end, none of them knows anything more about the big questions of life than I do … I read Socrates. This guy knocked off little Greek boys. What the Hell’s he got to teach me? And Nietzsche, with his theory of eternal recurrence. He said that the life we lived we’re gonna live over again the exact same way for eternity. Great. That means I’ll have to sit through the Ice Capades again. It’s not worth it. And Freud, another great pessimist. I was in analysis for years and nothing happened. My poor analyst got so frustrated, the guy finally put in a salad bar. Maybe the poets are right. Maybe love is the only answer."

- Woody Allen, Hannah and Her Sisters.
"Love me when I least deserve it, because that’s when I really need it."

- Swedish Proverb.
"Life is filled with abstractions, and the only way we make heads or tails of it is through intuition."

- David Lynch.
"You don’t have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."

- C.S. Lewis.
"It makes me uncomfortable to talk about meanings and things. It is better not to know so much about what things mean. Because the meaning, it’s a very personal thing and the meaning for me is different than the meaning for someone else."

- David Lynch.
