how queer life is!

beach combing on portland, oregon coast

Ambivalent to horrified by the well-known subject matter and story line of  Vladamir Nabokov's, "Lolita," which I'm reading now, I am impressed by the author's agile writing, astute observational skills, immense vocabulary, and seeming psychological insight into the human condition.

I marked this knowing quote this morning:

"How queer life is! We hasten to alienate the very fates we intended to woo."
