gwenfrankenstien: Detail from a painting of Lancelot and Guinevere's last meeting, at Arthur's tomb (used bookstore adventures)

Rules:

Pick ten books (prose novels work best; so pick no more than one play and one comic), and post your favourite line from each. (To make things more difficult, blank out any character names.)

Then it's everyone else's job to try and guess the title, the author, and the character speaking.


1. "And if you read it and don't believe it's real, so much the better. It will make another safeguard against [the villains of the piece].

But you wouldn't believe how lonely you get."

2. "No, I will not move your planet! What do you want to move it for? It's fine right where it is!"

3. "Shall I respect man when he condemns me? Let him live with me in the interchange of kindness; and, instead of injury, I would bestow every benefit upon him with tears of gratitude at his acceptance. But that cannot be."

4. "I sold flowers. I didn't sell myself. Now you've made a lady of me I'm not fit to sell anything else. I wish you'd left me where you'd found me."

5. "I just like being on committees."

6. "If you sit down and think about it sensibly, you come up with some very funny ideas [...] You start thinking: it can't be a great cosmic game of chess, it has to be just very complicated Solitaire."

7. "Fucking cat metaphors, I swear to god."

8. "Ah. This is obviously some strange usage of the word "safe" that I hadn't previously been aware of."

9. "Looking after clothes and keeping secrets are the two things I do best."

10. "I wish there was another way to do this. [...] But someone has to keep the chronicle, someone has to record and remember, and the only person left who can do it is me."
