"The days of my youth, as I look back on them, seem to fly away from me in a flurry of pale repetitive scraps like those morning snow storms of used tissue paper that a train passenger sees whirling in the wake of the observation car."
— Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita (via bethsbookshelf)
"I think if you don’t really like a girl, you shouldn’t really horse around with her at all, and if you do like her, then you’re supposed to like her face, and if you like her face, you ought to be careful about doing crumby stuff to it, like squirting water all over it."
— J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (via bethsbookshelf)
"Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own."
— Robert A. Heinlein (via realizes)
