Famous First Lines

I know, I know.

This really would be more appropriate for Friday, for a first lines post. But that’s not what you’re getting, and this isn’t even a full post.

It’s an invitation to you to share your favorite first line.

Mine is:

“There was no possibility of taking a walk that day.”

Charlotte Brontë: Jane Eyre (1847)

Simple, yet beautiful. I shall never have the talent of a Bronte. *sigh*

    I picked one more or less at random from an old favorite, The Htchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

    “Far out in the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm lies a small unregarded yellow sun.”

    And, more classically, from The Hobbit:

    “In a hole in the ground lived a hobbit.”

    This was fun. =)
