Best opening lines

Check out this article from Stylist magazine on the best 100 opening lines, taken from 100 classic novels.  From Pride and Prejudice ("It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife") and Moby Dick ("Call me Ishmael") to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ("Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small, unregarded yellow sun.") and Eat, Pray, Love ("I wish Giovanni would kiss me") these books start with a flourish and end with millions of satisfied readers.
