Weekend Challenge - Words, Music, and an Image

Apologies for being late posting! It's been ... a week, but I hope to help inspire some words and/or art, so - here goes.

Give me a three digit number and a noun, and I'll use them to pull you three prompts: A line from one of the top rated books of all time, a song from my iTunes, and an image from Google. I hope to get creative enough that the image might end up being much different from what your noun seems to suggest, but... let's see how that piece goes. :)

Post or otherwise share something the words inspired you to create by next Saturday PM, and I'll gladly make you some icons, write a ficlet, or put words on a wip!
