One of my favorite Christmas gifts that I received was a mug with great first lines of books.
It has great first lines like:
"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man of large fortune must be in want of a wife."- Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen
"Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself."- Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolfe
"Marley was dead to begin with."- A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
I feel smarter every time I take a sip of tea...
