My new favorite first paragraph

"I must reveal to you that I am not one of the Divine who march into the desert and return gravid with wisdom. I've traveled many cookfires and spread angel bait round every sleeping place. But more often than the getting of wisdom, I've gotten indelicate episodes of Girardiasis, E. coli, and amebic dysentery. Ai! Such is the fate of a midle-class mystic with delicate intestines."

From Women Who Run with The Wolves, by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
