Perl has taken me gently by the hand and gradually introduced me to some of the finer aspects of programming. Picking up a copy of Perl for dummies and and reading some of the pods was more than enough to get me started on the way to enlightenment. Whereas my first experience with C was akin to banging my head on a concrete wall, Perl was a soft fluffy cushion. Perl has taught me that There Is More Than One Way To Do It. Perl has taught me that as an extension of that it is ok for me to do things My Way. Perl has enlightened me to the shortcomings in other programming languages. And last but certainly not least, Perl has gently guided my path to the monastery, where I might spend such time as I please in the company of enlightened ones.
