in reply to Quote on Perl modules

Here's an 'original':

Pearls are not monolithic. The introduction of a seed particle into a bivalve initiates the formation of a pearl. The seed itself is a common and unattractive material. Thousands of thin layers slowly mineralize around the seed, collectively forming a gemstone. So too with Perl, itself a mis-shapen and almost accidentally formed nucleus around which the glittering corpus of CPAN has formed.

I swear I just came up with that, but probably someone else had that thought before. Probably Larry himself. I'm not trying to steal any ideas. Please let me know when you find out who. Use their phrasing, and quote them instead. I'm a lowly, unworthy monk, as I sling prose much better than code.
