because everyone is boring..and because you’re different

there are two kinds of visual memory


“there are two kinds of visual memory: one when you skillfully recreate 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 inner side 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).”

– Humbert Humbert, from Lolita.
