For the Obama inauguration, on France 2 TV Bernard-Henri LÚvy said that Nabokov always said that one can judge a man by the way he speaks. He was speaking French and there was no direct quotation, but can anyone identify the source, when and where Nabokov related this?
Nabokov ALWAYS said this? How would one reconcile this with Nabokov's written assertion: "I think like a genius, I write like a distinguished author, and I speak like a child"?
