Quote-a-Day. One year. Starting...... now.

I've swiped this idea from meronichan over at Facebook, who is posting quotes from books as her status updates. I'd like to tweak the idea to short excerpts, at least some of the time. It's the one-a-day I've been looking for...


001.

"There are two kinds of visual memory: one when you skillfully re-create an image in the laboratory of your mind, with your eyes open (and then I see Annabel in such general terms as: 'honey-colored skin,' 'thin arms,' 'brown bobbed hair,' 'long lashes,' 'big bright mouth'); and the other when you instantly evoke, with shut eyes, on the dark innerside of your eyelids, the objective, absolutely optical replica of a beloved face, a little ghost in natural colors (and this is how I see Lolita)."

Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov

I put a quote a day in my 365 blog as well. It's catching on rather quickly. :)
