Between the Lines
Within the stories we read, watch, and write, are some truly amazing lines. Lines that make us tremble with emotion and stay with us long after the details of a story fade away.
"I will think of you as dead, until my husband makes it so…then I will think of you no more."-Rob Roy (movie):
"Are there any questions?" –Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale (1986)
“...So do we pass the ghosts that haunt us later in our lives; they sit undramatically by the roadside like poor beggars, and we see them only from the corners of our eyes, if we see them at all."- Stephen King The Dark Tower IV
"My dear, I don't give a damn."-Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind
The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go
before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.-Robert Frost Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.
"Here's the deal -- I'm the best there is. Plain and simple. I wake up in the morning and I piss excellence."-Ricky Bobby aka Will Ferrell
"This is public school, if I can keep the girls off the pole and the boys off the pipe...I get a bonus." -Principle Gibbons in Easy A.
And one of the lines I’m most proud of in my current wip: Sometimes hate doesn’t need a reason…just a target.
What’s some of your favorite lines?
