„Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul.“

—  Vladimir Nabokov, libro Lolita

Opening lines.
Fuente: Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul. Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. 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. Did she have a precursor? She did, indeed she did. In point of fact, there might have been no Lolita at all had I not loved, one summer, an initial girl-child. In a princedom by the sea. Oh when? About as many years before Lolita was born as my age was that summer. You can always count on a murderer for fancy prose style. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, exhibit number one is what the seraphs, the misinformed, simple, noble-winged seraphs, envied. Look at this tangle of thorns.

„Here was my city, immense, overpowering, flooded with energy and light…“

—  Lewis Mumford American historian, sociologist, philosopher of technology, and literary critic 1895 - 1990

" Sketches from Life: The Autobiography of Lewis Mumford (1982), p. 130
Contexto: Here was my city, immense, overpowering, flooded with energy and light... The world, at that moment, opened before me, challenging me, beckoning me, demanding something of me that it would take more than a lifetime to give, but raising all my energies by its own vivid promise to a higher pitch.

„You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher.
Come on baby, light my fire —
Come on baby, light my fire —
Try to set the night on fire.“

—  Robby Krieger American rock guitarist and songwriter 1946

"Light My Fire" (1967); because Jim Morrison sang this as The Doors first hit, and he was the group's primary songwriter, this is often mistakenly thought by many to have been written by Morrison.

Come on baby, light my fire —
Come on baby, light my fire —
Try to set the night on fire.“

—  Jim Morrison lead singer of The Doors 1943 - 1971

"Light My Fire" (1967). Because Jim Morrison sang this as a breakthrough hit for The Doors and was the group's primary songwriter, this is often mistakenly thought to have been written by him. It was actually written by guitarist Robby Krieger, as were some other songs including "Love Her Madly," "You're Lost Little Girl" and "Touch Me" (as well as some other songs on the Soft Parade album). The second verse of the song, however, was written by Morrison.

„Opening, my eyes say 'Let there be light',
Closing, they shut me in a coffin.“

—  Stephen Spender English poet and man of letters 1909 - 1995

"The Human Situation"
The Still Centre (1939)
Contexto: And if this I were destroyed,
The image shattered,
My perceived, rent world would fly
In an explosion of final judgement
To the ends of the sky,
The colour in the iris of the eye.
Opening, my eyes say 'Let there be light',
Closing, they shut me in a coffin.
