I noticed today that the nations favourite opening line is;
"ALL children, except one, grow up." from J. M. Barrie's, Peter Pan.
It's a corker, that's for sure.
My favourite (at the moment, they have a habit of changing like the weather) is from Chris Hadfield's 'An Astronauts Guide to Life on Earth'
"The windows of a spaceship casually frame miracles"
It had been a while since an opening line "hit me for six" and that just blew me away (I have a love affair with everything to do with space, so I guess I'm slightly biased)
What would you choose as your favourite? Do you have any opening lines you have written that you are particularly proud of?
