    Nabokov, Vladimir

    Excerpt from Signs and Symbols:
    
    "In these very rare cases the patient imagines that everything happening
    around him is a veiled reference to his personality and existence. He
    excludes real people from the conspiracy - because he considers himself to
    be so much more intelligent than other men. Phenomenal nature shadows him
    wherever he goes. Clouds in the staring sky transmit to one another, by
    means of slow signs, incredibly detailed information regarding him. His
    inmost thoughts are discussed at nightfall, in manual alphabet, by darkly
    gesticulating trees. Pebbles or stains or sun flecks form patterns
    representing in some awful way messages which he must intercept.
    Everything is a cipher and of everything he is the theme. Some of the
    spies are detached observers, such are glass surfaces and still pools;
    others, such as coats in store windows, are prejudiced witnesses, lynchers
    at heart; others again (running water, storms) are hysterical to the point
    of insanity, have a distorted opinion of him and grotesquely misinterpret
    his actions. He must be always on his guard and devote every minute and
    module of life to the decoding of the undulation of things. The very air
    he exhales is indexed and filed away. If only the interest he provokes
    were limited to his immediate surroundings - but alas it is not! With
    distance the to rents of wild scandal increase in volume and volubility.
    The silhouettes of his blood corpuscles, magnified a million times, flit
    over vast plains; and still farther, great mountains of unbearable
    solidity and height sum up in terms of granite and groaning firs the
    ultimate truth of his being."
