A Quote by Stephen Mitchell

Eve bites into the fruit.  Suddenly she realizes that she is naked.  She begins to cry.  The kindly serpent picks up a handkerchief, gives it to her.  "It's all right," he says.  "The first moment is always the hardest."  "But I thought knowledge would be so wonderful," Eve says, sniffling.  "Knowledge?!" laughs the serpent.  "This fruit is from the Tree of Life."
