This is basically a sort of game I came up with, and if it would fit in better in another forum, please don't hesitate to move it.

The rules of the game are simple:

1. Person A (that'll be me, folks) will post a quote from some book. 2. Person B will attempt to name the book that the quote comes from, and then will post a quote of his. Hopefully Person A will evetually post back and confirm that the answer is correct. 3. Try to be unique in your quotes. Make the quote a rather distinguishable one, so that there is a chance in hell that somebody else can actually guess the book. The more well-known the book, the better.

All right, here goes:

[COLOR=DarkRed][COLOR=black]"Well, after all, this is the age of the disposable tissue. Blow your nose on a person, wad them, flush them away, reach for another, blow, wad, flush. Everyone using everyone else's coattails."

Good luck all! [/COLOR][/COLOR]

No idea, but I like the thread-idea so I'll just guess: something by Tom Clancy?

Here's an easy one: "For never was a story of more woe than this of ****** and her *****"

Hm, Dante? We had to read something similar at school once, but it was in German :)

Correct, though you didn't pick a new book... I've read Dante in Dutch and English, Italian is still a bit out of my league.
