Best Lines Ever… Go!

Sometimes an author writes a line that sticks with you.  Here are a few of my favorites, including one of my own (yes, I know, presumptuous).   What are your favorite lines from other authors, but especially yourself?

For Sale:  Baby Shoes.  Never Worn.  Earnest Hemingway (a six line story competition)

“Sometimes a woman needs a man for company, no matter how useless he is.”  Lisa Kleypas, Sugar Daddy

“I have sex,” Grace shrugged.
“I meant with a man,” Claudia said dryly.
“Now why would I ruin something so good by inviting a man along?”  Sarah Mayberry,  All Over You

“You signed me up for an orgy?  My own mother signed me up for an orgy?”  Masha Levinson, Cruising for Love

  1. Hahahahaha, chuckling at yours, Masha!

    Here are some of my faves (Thanks for asking us, by the way!)

    “You missed, moron. My son still lives, and one day, we are going to bathe in your blood.” Sherrilyn Kenyon, Styxx.

    “Turn your back,” she said.
    “Not for every gold dollar in the Federal treasury,” Inman said. Charles Frazier, Cold Mountain.

    “If you cannot be good, be the least bad you can be.” Sir Thomas More

    “If you cannot be good for yourself, be good for her. Always be good for her.” Carlene Love Flores, Wicked Flower

    1. Carlene-hero! I am disappointed! I give you such great one-liners! Ha-ha! 😉 Although I do love that Wicked Flower quote! 😉

      1. A few of my favorite Kerri Mermaid lines:

        “I don’t think a guy would call another guy a slut. I’m not sure what they call each other though. But not slut or ho or whore.” ~Kerri Carpenter

        “That’s not what you curse when someone breaks up with you. That is mean. I would curse him to go bald early or for his penis to shrink or something like that.” ~Kerri Carpenter

        “Sweet one.” Puked in mouth. ~ Kerri Carpenter


  2. I’m going for movie quotes here:

    “I ate my twin in the womb.” -Pitch Perfect
    “PC load letter? What the f*ck does that mean!” -Office Space
    “My foot hurts. Can I go to the nurse?” -Clueless
