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:

"Somewhere in this desert city, in one or two or ten of those flat brown houses, someone was waking up, kneeling down for prayer, and planning to kill Americans today"
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 *****"
Romeo and Juliet.
And rofl at killer. Might it have something to do with a wolf?

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.
