Literature speaks to people in different ways, was all that I was saying. It's not like I'm some dumbass, Im actually well read, but I just dont take my OPINION and change it into something resembling a fact-douche bag

Oh I wish they would have put the Westing Game's line on there. That's one of my favorite books.<3

Back off? Sorry--I'll go and sit on the other side of the lunch room, you dimwit.

"A matter of opinion?" What kind of douchebag thing is that to say? If the best literature is merely a "matter of opinion," then EVERYTHING is a matter of opinion.

"I believe the sky is orange."

"But it's blue!"

"That's just my opinion."

???????????????????????

"I believe that Britney Spears is poetry, but that's just my opinion."

"Ignorant subhuman retard."

Dang fools.

I like that one =] If it's in there, my bad homie.


The sun sets in the west (just about everyone knows that), but Sunset Towers faced east. Strange! Sunset Towers faced east and had no towers. - Ellen Raskin, The Westing Game

My favorite book and first line:

16. If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth. —J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye (1951)

bigoldjeffry,

Lay Off! You could have just told us without being a jerk about it. Besides, I never studied Shakespeare in H.S. You'd think I have, but I had crappy teachers. If I hadn't worked so hard I wouldn't have gotten into college. NOW BACK OFF!

i must agree...this was more about how popular or well recieved the novel was as a classic. Only a few of the first lines were impressive.

It does not have "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed"? Color me unimpressed.

There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it. —C. S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1952)
