Save line in file to list

file = input('Name: ')

with open(file) as infile:
for line in infile:
for name in infile:
name
print(name[line])


So if a user were to pass a file of vertical list of sentences, how would I save each sentence to its own list?

Sample input:

'hi'
'hello'
'cat'
'dog'


Output:

['hi']
['hello']
and so on...

Answer
>>> [line.split() for line in open('File.txt')]
[['hi'], ['hello'], ['cat'], ['dog']]

Or, if we want to be more careful about making sure that the file is closed:

>>> with open('File.txt') as f:
...    [line.split() for line in f]
... 
[['hi'], ['hello'], ['cat'], ['dog']]
