1. "Ergenlik suçlamalari,boyutlari ne olursa olsun,insanligin çektigi acilarin karmasikligini bir anda ortadan kaldiri veriyordu.Eger ergenlik suçlamasini edebiyat yapitlarina uyarlayacak olsaydik,dünya üzerindeki bütün edebiyat elestirmenleri islerinden olurdu.Hamlet'in,Raskolnikov'un ve Genç Werther'in sirri neydi?Erganlik bunalimlari tabi.Peki ya Don Quixote veya Humbert Humbert?Onda ne var canim,yanit:Orta yas bunalimlari.Öyleyse zavalli Anna Karenina'yi nasil açiklamaliydi?Yanit gayet baitti: regl öncesi sendromu,bir de fazla salgilanan hormonlar."

2. "The biggest crime in Nabokov's 'Lolita' is imposing your own dream upon someone else's reality. Humbert Humbert is blind. He doesn't see Lolita's reality. He doesn't see that Lolita should leave. He only sees Lolita as an extension of his own obsession. This is what a totalitarian state does."

4. "I loved Duncan and I loved being his mother but I wasn't sure I was prepared to be only his mother. Before we were even married, when Russell and I had gotten our dog, Humbert, I had walked him early one morning, and as I stood on a line for coffee, someone had offered him a dog treat. "I always ask the mommy first," she said, looking at him expectantly. "Oh, I'm not his mother," I said, "I'm just his...friend," and she looked at me with complete contempt. "You're his mother," she had scolded, "Poor dog."

5. "All my work will explode inside my body, each fragment of my anatomy will acquire a life of its own, outside mine, Humberto won't exist, only these monsters, the despot who imprisoned me at La Rinconada to force me to invent him, Ines's honey complexion, Brigida's death, Iris Mateluna's hysterical pregnancy, the saintly girl who was never beatified, Humberto Penaloza's father pointing out Don Jeronimo dressed up to go to the Jockey Club, and your benign, kind hand, Mother Benita, that does not and will not let go of mine, and your attention fixed on these words of a mute, and your rosaries, the Casa's La Rinconada as it once was, as it is now, as it was afterwards, the escape, the crime, all of it alive in my brain, Peta Ponce's prism refracting and confusing everything and creating simultaneous and contradictory planes, everything without ever reaching paper, because I always hear voices and laughter enveloping and tying me up."
Author: José Donoso
6. "And Belen?""Yes, Your Majesty?"Maybe I do want to talk about him. A little. "Humberto would be proud of you, too. He always believed you'd come back to us." Saying his name aloud doesn't hurt as much as I thought it would. Humberto, I practice silently. Humberto.A soft catch of breath. Then: "He had a way of believing in people long before they believed in themselves, didn't he?"The entrance to my tent flaps closes, and he is gone."
Author: Rae Carson

Lolita Haze: But it doesn't matter a bit, because you've stopped caring anyway. Humbert Humbert: What makes you say I've stopped caring for you? Lolita Haze: Well, you haven't even kissed me yet, have you?"
Author: Vladimir Nabokov
