"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend." 

While not strictly speaking the first sentence of Robert Jordan's The Eye of the World.. it is the first sentence of the first chapter.  And it's repeated in each book of the series.  I have to say.. it's my favorite line ever because it encapsulates the whole series.

I never had the pleasure of finishing that book series, but it's a great line. From what I have read, I can agree that it encompasses the whole series. It makes me want to take a step back from myself and make me look at a world that's bigger than the one I reside in.

I'm not starting that series until I am absolutely sure they won't publish anymore in the series. (I know my obsessive tendencies.)

It is a good line. But I have no idea how to narrow down to one favorite book to find its first line.

When I read the question, that's immediately what popped into my head because those words just grabbed my imagination when I started the first book.

The new author who has taken over since Robert Jordan died says the next one is the last. Now is a good time to start them :)

And when that book comes out, I will begin re-reading those I have read and buy the ones I haven't. Because DAMMIT THIS SERIES MUST END OMG.

Nope, not until it is published. I made that mistake with Stephen R. Donaldson. Isn't the second book out in the third set YET? *ARGH* Can't afford it right now, even if it is. :p
