Today's daily quotation on the Op-Ed page of the (Boulder) Colorado
Daily: "My loathings are simple: stupidity, oppression, crime, cruelty,
soft music." - Vladimir Nabokov.

I don't remember where this is from - most likely one of the interviews.
But the last item in the list doesn't sound right. Is this a misquote?
