comment How to attract the average reader to an “intellectual” novel?
The quote is a good example of a sentence that's immediately understandable, yet does not reveal enough to allow it to stand on its own thereby getting the reader to read on. I doubt sales are a good measure of a book's 'goodness' - there's plenty of great free content around.

comment How many words (or lines) are long enough to make someone think about his life but short enough to hook lazy readers?
Too bad this is closed - it's a good topic. The Hemingway answer is great. Here's another "Before I die..." - it expresses a wish, a desire, a goal - something that's attainable and something that's far out of reach - open to a range of possibilities. Maybe something like "Before I Die. I almost laughed when I saw that in the paper. I continued to read what others want to do - "have some fun", "believe", "swim without holding my nose", "live without money" - I was hooked and was..." - you get the idea!
