Meine liebsten ersten Sätze sind... / My favourite first sentences are...

It was about eleven o'clock in the morning, mid October, with the sun not shining and a look of hard wet rain in the clearness of the foothills. I was wearing my powder-blue suit, with dark blue shirt, tie and display handkerchief, black brogues, black wool socks with dark little clocks on them. I was neat, clean, shaved and sober, and I didn't care who knew it. I was everything the well-dressed private detective ought to be. I was calling on four million dollars.

Passt heute irgendwie, oder? Aus Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep.

Kind of fitting today, isn´t it? From Raymond Chandler, The Big Sleep.
