Buried under a stone.

Found this text from this page, which is about famous authors that had their books initially rejected. Since I love everything Lolita-related, I really loved this comment:

“I recommend that it be buried under a stone for a thousand years.” Shunned by all the major publishers, the author goes to France and lands a deal with Olympia Press. The first 5000 copies quickly sell out. But the author Vladimir Nabokov now sees his novel, Lolita, published by all those that initially turned it down, with combined sales of 50 million.
