Take the first sentence from your favorite book and make it the first sentence of your post.

The river flowed both ways. And each decision had two sides. Often, though, I didn’t really understand that and looked to others to decide my fate. That made it seem to me, at least, that the river only flowed one way – their way – and each decision had only one side – theirs.

I’m over that now. I see all sides, I watch the way the river flows, that way and this way. And then I wade in. And walk the way I want.

 

The first line is from the finest book I ever read – The Diviners by Margaret Laurence.
