Yeah. It's a great story, if you haven't yet read it. Smiling

Here's another one I like, not so much for it's beauty--it's a utilitarian sort of sentence--but for its honesty....

"In the beginning, human beings created a God who was the First Cause of all things and Ruler of heaven and earth."

Karen Armstrong, The History of God

I do wonder, though, at the paucity of good opening lines in my books... I default to poetry...

"An artifact,
The shards of things
Their hands have held
And used
And laid aside

Edith Purevich, from A Gathering of Spirit
I have little confidence in any enterprise or business or investment that promises dividends only after the death of the stockholders.
