I tend to start with something or someone else then have my character consider it: 'City Grey 11 is my home now,' - 'Something else smashes against the wall,' - '"...Three months he has had over thirty-six attempts,"'

Personally, (although this is purely objective), I would go with the 'It all started with broken glass...' It keeps the reader more interested - obviously they'll want to know why shattered glass plays an important part in the next sequence of events. Did he break a jam jar on someone's head? The other opening line is less intriguing.

fantasy/action romance, though trying to get away from that... what first line would create more suspense/more original? It all started with broken glass... ~OR~ I remember every step that led me here. If I must die, I am ready.... Comments? Suggestions? Thanks! T.K.
