We are Duplicitous, We’re Blind… ~ Nabakov

“We are duplicitous, we’re blind- and it is hard to live, trusting only in life: earthly life is a murky translation from the divine original; the general thought is clear but the primordial music is missing in its words. . . What are passions? Mistakes in the translation. What is love? A rhyme lost in transmission to our discordant language. . . It’s time for me to take up the original!”

―Vladimir Nabokov, The Tragedy of Mister Morn
