Quote #4

Quine the Swine. Guilty of killing Quilty. Oh, my Lolita, I have only words to play with! (1.8.4)

Beware of anyone who has this much fun with words. Could be actually be telling us how to read his own book?

Quote #5

Humbert Humbert is also infinitely moved by the little one's slangy speech. (1.11.5)

Humbert is charmed by Lolita's misuse of the language. Part of her charm is her typical American adolescent way of talking.

Quote #6
