wjhk:

Light of my life, fire of my loins.
يا ضوء حياتي.. أيتها النار المتوقدة في عروقي

Look what I found on my dashboard.. I remember someone asked me to translate this quote from Lolita..
"Light of my life, fire of my loins. My sin, my soul" 
The image above is missing the “My sin, my soul” part though..
I had trouble with the word “loins”! there’s just no way to translate this word without sacrificing something of Nabokov’s passion ya 7aram :/ The professional translator opted for the word “veins” while I used “Desire/Passion”. I also found some translations using “Chest/heart/breast”. Here is my translation:
         نُورُ حَيَاتِي، نَارُ رَغْبَتِي، خَطِيئَتي وَ رُوحِي
