Famous One line Shayari

It happens sometimes that we are reminded of one particular line of a sher but we do not remember the other line that goes with it. It is usually because of the epigrammatic quality of that line or because that line in itself is so powerful that it does not require any other line to supplement it. We have some shers here which are known for one line rather than for the whole sher. This would be a fascinating discovery for you.
