Quotes are great things. Other people are really quite good at saying things I think, but can’t verbalize.
Opening lines from books are some of the best quotes. They have to pull you in, they have to be clever, they have to say something.
My favorite opening line is from Kurt Vonnegut’s “Cat’s Cradle.” A lot of my favorite words are from Vonnegut.
“Call me Jonah. My parents did, or nearly did. They called me John.”
What are some of your favorite opening lines?
