So the Gatsby "story" card got me thinking. I did a bit of browsing around and came up with a collection of "story" quotes: I'm going to do a signature series of story cards.
Or maybe you'd like one of these?
"Old storytellers never die. They disappear into their own story."
"Stories are a communal currency of humanity." Arabian Nights
"Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving." Madeleine L'Engle
"Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart bigger." Ben Okri
"The universe is made up of stories, not of atoms." Muriel Rukeyser
"There is always room for a story that can transport people to another place." J. K. Rowling
..and that, of course, is my cue to remind everyone of Storytelling Sunday next week. Pick Your Precious, or anything else you'd like to tell us about and come and join us next week.
"The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live." Ursula K. Le Guin
Short or tall, we'll read them all. I can guarantee it!
