First lines of famous books

OK, iconic movie lines got me thinking about this. I read to a very well-educated, but now blind, woman and we got going on this. She came up with:

"Call me Ishmael"

and I came up with:

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times."

Anyone got any interesting ones. Hey, if you google or wiki, you're cheating!
