Opening paragraphs

     There are no hundred percent heroes.
-John MacDonald, Cinnamon Skin

Pretty short opening paragraph.  Just for good measure, here is
the second:

     Every man can be broken when things happen to him in a certain order, with a momentum and an intensity that awakens ancient fears in the back of his mind.  He knows what he must do, but suddenly the body will not obey the mind.  Panic becomes like an unbearably shrill sound.
