'Call me Ishmael.' 
'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.' 
'It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness... 
'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.'

Poems
And it was at this age ... Poetry arrived in search of me. I don't know, I don't know where it came from, from winter or a river. 
By a route obscure and lonely, Haunted by ill angels only, 
Of Man's first disobedience, and the fruit Of that forbidden tree whose mortal taste Brought death into the world, and all our woe.. 
What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up Like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore -- And then run? 
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, Old Time is still a-flying: And this same flower that smiles today Tomorrow will be dying. 
Songs
Load up on guns and bring your friends, It's fun to lose and to pretend. She's over-bored and self-assured, Oh no, I know a dirty word 
I'm all out of hope/One more bad dream could bring a fall/When I'm far from home/ Don't call me on the phone.. 
Yeah, I'm out that Brooklyn/Now I'm down in Tribeca/Right next to DeNiro/But I'll be hood forever/I'm the new Sinatra/And since I made it here/I can make it anywhere.. 
Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. 
How many special people change? How many lives are living strange? Where were you while we were getting high? 
Movies
As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster. 
The key to faking out the parents is the clammy hands. 
People are always asking me if I know Tyler Durden... 
'In 1988, the crime rate in the United States rises four hundred percent. The once-great city of New York becomes the one maximum-security prison for the entire country.  
“What can you say about a 25-year-old girl who died? That she was beautiful and brilliant? That she loved Mozart and Bach, the Beatles, and me?”
