I'm looking for examples of sentences that start with And

Hi there,
I'm trying to find a couple of famous examples from books where a sentence starts with AND. If you can think of any would love to hear!

  • And I still have other smothered memories, now unfolding themselves into limbless monsters of pain.
    —Vladimir Nabakov, Lolita (it has been included in several lists of best books, such as Time's List of the 100 Best Novels, Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century, Bokklubben World Library, Modern Library's 100 Best Novels, and The Big Read)

    And so we stood together like that, at the top of that field for what seemed like ages, not saying anything, just holding each other, while the wind kept blowing and blowing at us, tugging our clothes, and for a moment, it seemed like we were holding onto each other because that was the only way to stop us from being swept away into the night.
    —Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go (shortlisted for the 2005 Booker Prize, for the 2006 Arthur C. Clarke Award and for the 2005 National Book Critics Circle Award)

    From Merriam-Webster:

    Firstly, has it ever been wrong to begin a sentence with and or but? No, it has not. We have been breaking this rule all the way from the 9th century Old English Chronicle through the current day. Many translations of the Bible are filled with sentence-initial ands and buts, and they even may be found in some of our more beloved—and prescriptive—usage guides. The 1959 edition of Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style begins two sentences in a row with these prohibited words, and does so with nary a trace of self-consciousness:

    But since writing is communication, clarity can only be a virtue. And although there is no substitute for merit in writing, clarity comes closest to being one.
    —William Strunk Jr. & E. B. White, The Elements of Style, 1959 (Time named in 2011 as one of the 100 best and most influential books written in English since 1923)
