But while the blood still throbs through my writing hand, you are still as much part of blessed matter as I am. I am thinking of aurochs and angels, the secret of durable pigments, prophetic sonnets, the refuge of art. And this is the only immortality you and I may share.

Vladimir Nabokov (Lolita)
