    In the 1950s, some association of literature teachers voted to choose the single best line in American literature. The winner was, "The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could... but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge." (Poe, The Cask of Amontillado)(My high school English teacher made us all memorize it.
