    I am of course tempted to go with:

    Lolita, light of my life, fire of my loins. Vladimir Nabokov Lolita 1955

    However, Charles Dickens is unforgettable:

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair. Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities 1859
