    Writers: Can you quote some of the most beautiful writing in fiction or non-fiction?

    Have you ever read a phrase or paragraph that made you stop to take in the beauty of the words? Can you share some of the most evocative writing that really stood out?

    "But we must all lie in coffins, eventually." - Lestat, Interview with the Vampire by Anne Rice.
    I don't know if you'd consider this "beautiful" per se, but I found this quote so striking when I read it because of the simplicity and gravity of it (especially considering Lestat is a vampire).
