I am an insect that dreamt he was a man and loved it, but now that dream is over, and the insect is awake.
Some lines stay with you. They could be in a movie, a book, a song, but the mix of words and sentiment come together so well that it sends shivers down you spine.
A single grain of rice can tip the scale. One man may be the difference between victory and defeat.
It might be lighthearted, or deadly serious, but you remember it. Citations of these lines will make you smile, or tear up, or shiver. Something about these lines just stick.
God isn’t supposed to be a hack horror writer.
So what is it about these lines that force a reaction from us? I believe it has something to do with build up. It’s not so much the words themselves, but the stories they embody. The lines I remember are usually the ones that contain the story, or at least a major part of it.
Now for wrath. Now for ruin. And the red dawn!
Or, of course, the lines that define a character.
Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle.
Regardless, they are lines that stand out because they contain much more than the words themselves. They tell the story.
What words make you shiver? And can you place each quote in this post?
