Write your Best Line---


Many people are known for their famous lines. What is your most unforgettable line in your novel or poem that would inspire others to read your work? Post your line. I apologize that your book cover cannot be displayed, yet!


Humphrey Bogart, Casablanca-
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine."                                                                                                                                                   





Robert Frost--

Virginia Woolfe, Between the Acts   "Books are the mirrors of the soul" 

Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing,  "Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a land mine. The land mine is me. After the explosion, I spend the rest of the day putting the pieces back together. Now, it's your turn. Jump!"
“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.William Faulkner, Light in August“Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window.”






Maya Angelou, Phenomenal Woman, “I am a Woman Phenomenally.
Phenomenal Woman,
that's me."
         



 






A.H.Scott, Fanaman Curse,
"...leaving blankets of bloody footprints that went nowhere—they led to nowhere. Yet they were everywhere. The sound of geese, screaming far off in the distance, released Charlotte from her entrapment"






“Posterity is the world to come; the world for whom we hold our ideals, from whom we have borrowed our planet, and to whom we bear sacred responsibility. We must do what America does best: offer more opportunity to all and demand responsibility from all”…Bill Clinton, New York Times,  Washington, D.C. (January 20, 1993)
