It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen....

First sentence in a book or first scene in a filim set the mood for the rest isn't it? may be because of that all of them first ones are the most critical.. as they say first impression is the.........:))

well !! when I also decided to start my own blog even I was thinking of a dramatic ,intriguing and stylish first sentence.... I was confused should i make it long/short ? Should i go right into a dialogue or should i save one? ;or should i start with classic ones like.....It was a dark and stormy night or It was a day like any other or Once upon a time there lived a prince. .
I was royally confused .. I thought a lot ..well what could be that???? but ..... i couldn't find any...

Any way all these things flashed thru my mind when i saw an article on the ' best opening sentences in fiction '.... I have looped some of them for those people who are intersted...

The telephone rang, and she knew she was going to die.— Arturo Perez-Reverte, The Queen of the South

Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice ---One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.

“It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me.”—Anthony Burgess, Earthly Powers (1980).

“I planned my death carefully; unlike my life, which meandered along from one thing to another, despite myfeeble attempts to control it.” Margaret Atwood’s Lady Oracle

“The hull of the submarine was lashed to the huge pilings, a behemoth strapped in silhoutte, the sweeping lines of its bow arcing into the light of the North Sea dawn”. The Holcroft Covenant Robert Ludlum

“The afternoon sun baked down on Yemen’s port city of Oman, as twenty-four men gathered in a traditional ceremonial tent”. Sand Storm-Steve Clackson .

The problem is credibility.”–Ron Carlson, “Bigfoot Stole My Wife

“S. Levin, formerly a drunkard, after a long and tiring transcontinental journey, got off the train at Marathon, Cascadia, towards evening of the last Sunday in August, 1950.”- Bernard Malamud, A New Life

“The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness.”Vladimir Nabokov, Speak Memory.

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.--1984 by George Orwell
Windows on the World,’ by Frederic Beigbeder: “You know how it ends: Everybody dies.”

Some humorous quotes :::
1.A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman
must do what he can't.
2.Every time I close the door on reality it comes in
through the windows.
3. try to take one day at a time, but sometimes
several days attack me at once.
4.Love your enemies. It makes them so damned mad.
5.The chicken came first - God would look silly sitting on an egg.
6.Lead me not into temptation; I can find the way myself.
7.Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile way and you have their shoes.
8.A signature always reveals a man's character - and sometimes even his name.
9.Who says nothing is impossible. I've been doing nothing for years.
10.I'm not a vegetarian because I love animals, I'm a vegetarian because I hate plants.

Some more humour :
1.Every time we listen to the top fifty records we shudder to think what the bottom fifty must sound like.
2.Always borrow money from a pessimist: he doesn't expect to be paid back.
3.The definition of a consultant: Someone who borrows, your watch, tells you the time and then charges you for the privalige.
4.War does not determine who is right - only who is left.
5.Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
