“May the force be with you.” ~Star Wars
We’ve all heard those memorable lines from movies and books that we end up quoting and repeating over the years. “A rose by any other name…,” Shakespeare. “I’ll be back,” from the Terminator. “Nevermore!” Edgar Allen Poe. Just hearing one of these lines brings to mind the movie or story that they come from and instantly take you back to it. You remember who said it and what they were doing in the story when they said it. “God bless us, every one!” ~ as Tiny Tim so eloquently put it.
Those often quoted lines helped make someone famous. The writer, the director, the actor that read the lines. Youtube’s viral videos not withstanding, most of these lines started with someone putting a pen to paper and doing the hard work of writing them down.
