Pudelka, I love you

“You have to be an artist and a madman, a creature of infinite melancholy, 
with a bubble of hot poison in your loins and a super-voluptuous flame 
permanently aglow in your subtle spine (oh, how you have to cringe and hide!), 
in order to discern at once, by ineffable signs--the slightly feline outline of a cheekbone, 
the slenderness of a downy limbs, and other indices which despair and shame and tears of tenderness forbid me to tabulate
-the little deadly demon among the wholesome children; 
he stands unrecognized by them and unconscious herself of her fantastic power.” 

― Vladimir NabokovLolita
