It was the best of times, it was the worst of times
To be, or not to be, that is the question
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary
Some animals are more equal than others
One ring to rule them all. One ring to find them. One ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth
I will not eat them Sam I am
The horror! The horror!
On the breast of her gown, in fine red cloth, surrounded with an elaborate embroidery
and fantastic flourishes of gold thread, appeared the letter A
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession
of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife
All for one and one for all
Now is the winter of our discontent
Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way
Sing, goddess, of Achilles ruinous anger which brought
ten thousand pains to the Achaeans
Abandon hope all ye who enter here
Please, sir, I want some more
Call me Ishmael
All warfare is based on deception

I went even more specific than books because the passage is commonly titled in its own right as a work of stand-alone poetry.

I was so busy trying to figure out what novel had reused that line from the Bible that "Bible" itself didn't even cross my mind. *facepalm*

I tried Richard the Third, Richard 111, Richard the 3, just couldn't get it right.

All of those things would have worked. Except Richard 111. We need 108 more Richards before we get to him.

Great quiz! I only missed Anna Karenina, but only because I haven't read it yet. I'm not fond of Russian literature, unfortuantely.

"Name the novels, plays and poems that feature these famous quotes." Just a quibble: the Bible is neither novel, play, or poem (excepting the Psalms).
