I was driving with my two kids in the backseat and heard them whispering to each other, "You ask him."
"No, you ask him."

"Dad?"

"Yes?"

"Is is true what they say, that Rome wasn't built in a day?"

I read Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita because of a lyric in a song by "The Police." Similarly they heard that line on a YouTube parody and it got them to thinking. We can find inspiration from a variety of sources.
