Dust motes dancing in the air? Enough already. Quotes for Writers (and people who like quotes)

dust motesHow many stories can begin with some type of light bursting forth through a hunk of glass? Apparently there is no limit. At least 15% of stories contain some type of light coming through something in the opening paragraph. There are often dust motes thrown in there for good measure. Please, no more dust motes.
