Audience Reviews for Lolita
- Humbert Humbert: She was Lo, plain Lo, in the morning, standing four feet ten in one sock. She was Lola in slacks, she was Dolly at school. She was Dolores on the dotted line. But in my arms she was always - Lolita. Light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin. My soul.
- Lolita: I was a daisy fresh girl and look what you've done to me.
- Lolita: You look a 100% better when I can't see you.
