Storytelling quotes by Lee Gutkind
#1. I am a writer and editor with a passion for true storytelling. To me, science matters, research matters and knowledge matters, whatever the field. #Quote by Lee Gutkind
Storytelling quotes by James Crumley
#2. Stories are like snapshots, pictures snatched out of time, with clean hard edges. But this was life, and life always begins and ends in a bloody muddle, womb to tomb, just one big mess, a can of worms left to rot in the sun. #Quote by James Crumley
Storytelling quotes by George Saunders
#3. The best stories proceed from a mysterious truth-seeking impulse that narrative has when revised extensively; they are complex and baffling and ambiguous; they tend to make us slower to act, rather than quicker. They make us more humble, cause us to empathize with people we don't know, because they help us imagine these people, and when we imagine them - if the storytelling is good enough - we imagine them as being, essentially, like us. If the story is poor, or has an agenda, if it comes out of a paucity of imagination or is rushed, we imagine those other people as essentially unlike us: unknowable, inscrutable, incontrovertible. #Quote by George Saunders
Storytelling quotes by Jonathan Gottschall
#4. Don't despair for story's future or turn curmudgeonly over the rise of video games or reality TV. The way we experience story will evolve, but as storytelling animals, we will no more give it up than start walking on all fours. #Quote by Jonathan Gottschall
Storytelling quotes by Carmine Gallo
#5. Storytelling is not something we do. Storytelling is who we are. #Quote by Carmine Gallo
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#6. Live spiritually and you'll be fine. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Joss Whedon
#7. When you're telling a story, you're trying to connect to people in a particular way ... The way in which you guys have inhabited this world, this universe, has made you part of it, part of the story. You are living in Firefly. When I see you guys, I don't think the show is off the air. I don't think there's a show; I think that's what the world is like. ... The story is our lives. #Quote by Joss Whedon
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#8. Telling our personal story reveals the shape shifting landscape of our mind. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Mike Cosper
#9. All human creativity is an echo of God's creativity. When God makes man, he forms him in the dirt, breathes life into him, and sends him out in the world. We've been playing in the dirt ever since. Just as God took something he'd made, shaped it, breathed life and meaning into it, and transformed it into something new, so we set about our own business, taking creation, shaping it, and giving it new meaning and purpose. Clay becomes sculpture. Trees become houses. Sounds are arranged in time to become music. Oils, pigments, and canvas are arranged to become paintings. Various metals, glass, and petroleum products become iPhones. The same is true of stories. There is nothing new under the sun, and our stories - no matter how fresh and new they might feel - are all a way of "playing in the dirt," wrestling with creation, reimagining it, working with it, and making it new. Our stories have a way of fitting into the bigger story of redemption that overshadows all of life and all of history. Because that bigger story is the dirt box in which all the other stories play. #Quote by Mike Cosper
Storytelling quotes by Dean Koontz
#10. I don't procrastinate because I love the English language and the process of storytelling, and I'm always curious to see what will come to me next. If you procrastinate a lot, you might be one who loves having written, but doesn't so much like writing. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#11. Cry while writing it, and readers will cry while reading it. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Christopher Meledandri
#12. I think that it's important for a film that's in 3D that the filmmakers create the movie from a staging and scene planning standpoint with the dimensional space as one of their storytelling components. #Quote by Christopher Meledandri
Storytelling quotes by Neil Gaiman
#13. The best advice I can give on this is, once it's done, to put it away until you can read it with new eyes. Finish the short story, print it out, then put it in a drawer and write other things. When you're ready, pick it up and read it, as if you've never read it before. If there are things you aren't satisfied with as a reader, go in and fix them as a writer: that's revision. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Storytelling quotes by Lloyd Jones
#14. Stories have a job to do. They can't just lie around like lazybone dogs. They have to teach you something. #Quote by Lloyd Jones
Storytelling quotes by Gavin Extence
#15. It's possible to find order in chaos, and it's equally possible to find chaos underlying apparent order. Order and chaos are slippery concepts. They're like a set of twins who like to swap clothing from time to time. Order and chaos frequently intermingle and overlap, the same as beginnings and endings. Things are often more complicated, or more simple, than they seem. Often it depends on your angle. I think that telling a story is a way of trying to make life's complexity more comprehensible. It's a way of trying to separate order from chaos, patterns from pandemonium. #Quote by Gavin Extence
Storytelling quotes by Nate Powell
#16. The comics I made from 1990 to 1997 were largely based in vaguely urban, vaguely dystopic settings because that was my reference point for comics storytelling in general. #Quote by Nate Powell
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#17. Your life is a story. Write the one you want to read. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Charles Sturridge
#18. I believe in fairy tales. They are the basis of all our performance of storytelling and film-making - when we twist the real events of the world into something that offers us hope - and I believe in that. #Quote by Charles Sturridge
Storytelling quotes by Garrison Keillor
#19. What keeps faith cheerful is the extreme persistence of gentleness and humor. Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things: through cooking and small talk, through storytelling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music, and books, raising kids-all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. Even in a time of elephantine vanity and greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people. Lacking any other purpose in life, it would be good enough to live for their sake. #Quote by Garrison Keillor
Storytelling quotes by Beryl Markham
#20. The only disadvantage in surviving a dangerous experience lies in the fact that your story of it tends to be anticlimactic. You can never carry on right through the point where whatever it is that threatens your life actually takes it
and get anybody to believe you. The world is full of sceptics. #Quote by Beryl Markham
Storytelling quotes by Margaret Atwood
#21. You're never going to kill storytelling, because it's built into the human plan. We come with it. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Storytelling quotes by Quentin Tarantino
#22. I actually think one of my strengths is my storytelling. #Quote by Quentin Tarantino
Storytelling quotes by Lara Adrian
#23. Angels and demons, vampires and lycans, all set against an inventive, intriguing story world that hooked me from the first page. Balancing action and romance, humor and hot sensuality, Sylvia Day's storytelling dazzles. I can't wait to read more about this league of sexy, dangerous guardian angels and the fascinating world they inhabit. A Touch of Crimson is a paranormal romance lover's feast! #Quote by Lara Adrian
Storytelling quotes by Okey Ndibe
#24. What I know are simple truths. I know that the fabric of memory is reinforced by stories, rent by silences. I know that power dreads memory. I know that memory outlasts power's viciousness. I know . . . that a voiceless man is as good as dead. #Quote by Okey Ndibe
Storytelling quotes by Li-Young Lee
#25. The problem with memory is that is changes whatever it touches. It is never that accurate. As a result, I end up modifying and revising my own experiences. It's myth making. #Quote by Li-Young Lee
Storytelling quotes by Todd Stocker
#26. Stories give color to black and white information. #Quote by Todd Stocker
Storytelling quotes by Robin McKinley
#27. Tales are as much the necessary fabric of our lives as our bodies are. #Quote by Robin McKinley
Storytelling quotes by Desmond Tutu
#28. If you are able to talk about your life and the joys and sorrows you have experienced, if you know your story, you are much more likely to be a skillful parent. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Storytelling quotes by Don Roff
#29. If you focus on the humanity of your stories, your characters, then the horror will be stronger, scarier. Without the humanity, the horror becomes nothing more than a tawdry parlor trick. All flash and no magic, and worst of all, no heart. #Quote by Don Roff
Storytelling quotes by Terry Pratchett
#30. The anthropologists got it wrong when they named our species Homo sapiens ('wise man'). In any case it's an arrogant and bigheaded thing to say, wisdom being one of our least evident features. In reality, we are Pan narrans, the storytelling chimpanzee. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#31. Just say no to negative energy. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Garth Risk Hallberg
#32. I think there is a real thing going on where writers are feeling more liberated to write with a big canvas because of a demonstrable, continued appetite for long-form storytelling. #Quote by Garth Risk Hallberg
Storytelling quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#33. [Janco] paused. His eyes held a distant gleam as if seeing into his past. 'My first practice was a shock. I was a cocky smart aleck
'
[Opal] 'Was?'
[J] 'Be quiet. I'm telling a story here. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Storytelling quotes by Ron Perlman
#34. Look at the people who are coming to television Ridley Scott, Ang Lee or Guillermo del Toro - all these great filmmakers - actively put themselves back into TV. That's because the environment is very encouraging for bold storytelling, storytelling that you've never seen before. #Quote by Ron Perlman
Storytelling quotes by Sara Frost
#35. I am a storyteller, spiraling fantasy and reality into mystical tales. That eerie space between fact and fiction, where only the brightest light can scare the shadows - you will find me there. #Quote by Sara Frost
Storytelling quotes by Glenda Millard
#36. O Grandpa turned the rusty latchkey of his magnificent remembery and set free a symphony of stories #Quote by Glenda Millard
Storytelling quotes by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
#37. He concluded that at least part of the trouble was slipshod storytelling in the New Testament. He supposed that the intent of the Gospels was to teach people, among other things, to be merciful, even to the lowest of the low. But the Gospels actually taught this: Before you kill somebody, make absolutely sure he isn't well connected. So #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
Storytelling quotes by Robert McKee
#38. Story is metaphor for life and life is lived in time. #Quote by Robert McKee
Storytelling quotes by Jane Yolen
#39. Storytelling is our oldest form of remembering the promises we have made to one another and to our various gods, and the promises given in return; it is a way of recording our human emotions and desires and taboos. #Quote by Jane Yolen
Storytelling quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#40. A tale may have exactly three beginnings: one for the audience, one for the artist, and one for the poor bastard who has to live in it. #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Storytelling quotes by Leslie Pietrzyk
#41. That's the problem with revealing true truths. They make people uncomfortable. The truth should be grand and exotic, but mostly it isn't. Mostly it's uncomfortable. #Quote by Leslie Pietrzyk
Storytelling quotes by Billy Campbell
#42. To me, the AMC brand is great storytelling - they call it slow-burn storytelling. #Quote by Billy Campbell
Storytelling quotes by Harold Clarke Goddard
#43. The destiny of the world is determined less by the battles that are lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in. #Quote by Harold Clarke Goddard
Storytelling quotes by Keanu Reeves
#44. But I think we're also just talking about the literacy of the audience. The visual literacy of the audience. They've seen so many images now, especially here in the States. There's so much to look at, to watch. So the visual storytelling literacy is harder to impress. #Quote by Keanu Reeves
Storytelling quotes by Bryan Fuller
#45. The definition of horror is pretty broad. What causes us "horror" is actually a many splendored thing (laughs). It can be hard to make horror accessible, and that's what I think Silence of the Lambs did so brilliantly - it was an accessible horror story, the villain was a monster, and the protagonist was pure of heart and upstanding so it had all of these great iconographic elements of classic storytelling. It was perceived less as a horror movie than an effective thriller, but make no mistake, it was a horror movie and was sort of sneaky that way. #Quote by Bryan Fuller
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#46. Writers don't write about just anybody. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Lena Waithe
#47. My brand is good storytelling. I really want [my company] Hillman Grad Productions to be associated with great stories, interesting characters; things that are three-dimensional and feel honest. #Quote by Lena Waithe
Storytelling quotes by Brad Pitt
#48. We're so complex; we're mysteries to ourselves; we're difficult to each other. And then storytelling reminds us we're all the same. #Quote by Brad Pitt
Storytelling quotes by Steven Moffat
#49. I think that's the way people absorb television. All the explanations in Doctor Who are there if that's your bag, but they're not essential to your enjoyment of it. An awful lot of storytelling isn't really about making people understand - it's about making people care. #Quote by Steven Moffat
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#50. I'd rather be a fool than afraid. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Stephen King
#51. There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story ... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words
the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book. #Quote by Stephen King
Storytelling quotes by George Lucas
#52. Storytelling is about two things; it's about character and plot. #Quote by George Lucas
Storytelling quotes by Jonathan Baldie
#53. Don't think that writing your character as an untainted paragon of virtue will make them likeable - actually the opposite is true. People are attracted to each other's rough edges. Your readers will relate more with your hero if they show issues that taint their character. #Quote by Jonathan Baldie
Storytelling quotes by Osamu Dazai
#54. It would seem that the more irresponsible and crafty one is, the more likely one is to have a talent for storytelling. #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Storytelling quotes by Graham Greene
#55. A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead. #Quote by Graham Greene
Storytelling quotes by Felicia Day
#56. People always ask why I stay in the online space versus going to TV or film, like most people would do, and the answer is that there's opportunity for innovation online - not only innovation in storytelling, but also innovation in how you interact with your audience and that is very fulfilling to me personally. #Quote by Felicia Day
Storytelling quotes by Josh Lanyon
#57. I know you've all heard the advice, "Show, don't tell." The best writers don't tell you, and quite frankly they don't just show you
they make you feel it, live it, taste it, touch it. Storytelling is about being in the moment with the characters. #Quote by Josh Lanyon
Storytelling quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#58. But I am a storyteller, and that involves language, for me the English language, that wonderfully rich, complex, and ofttimes confusing tongue. When language is limited, I am thereby diminished, too. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#59. Be an artist; you can get away with anything. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Roger Ebert
#60. ' The Lucky One' is at its heart a romance novel, elevated however by Nicholas Sparks' persuasive storytelling. Readers don't read his books because they're true, but because they ought to be true. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Storytelling quotes by Harry Lee Poe
#61. Storytelling explores the problem with people. Stories without conflict are bad stories that no one repeats. Conflict describes the reality of human life and interaction with others. The resolution of the conflict in which everyone lives happily ever after reflects the human yearning for hope. #Quote by Harry Lee Poe
Storytelling quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#62. All autobiography is storytelling; all writing is autobiography. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Storytelling quotes by Cullen Bunn
#63. I wholeheartedly believe that super heroes can play in virtually any storytelling genre. #Quote by Cullen Bunn
Storytelling quotes by David Harsanyi
#64. Biblical movies need not sermonize, just be honest to the foundational story. As powerful as the message is for people of faith, it's really great storytelling. #Quote by David Harsanyi
Storytelling quotes by Damon Lindelof
#65. Hopping around time in a non-linear storytelling fashion (on 'Lost') allows you to bring back characters who are dead and, in some cases, buried. Now that time travel is the story itself, it opens up even more doors. So when an actor reads that they're getting killed off on the show, they're basically, like, 'Okay, but should I still bother to show up next week?' #Quote by Damon Lindelof
Storytelling quotes by Zainab Salbi
#66. The single thing all women need in the world is inspiration, and inspiration comes from storytelling. #Quote by Zainab Salbi
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#67. Storytelling still matters in the digital age, because commencing in adolescences and continuing through adulthood, people receive training in using stories to describe the human contestants, organize the facts, communicate the moral message behind the messy human conflict, evaluate competing ethical issues, and render a final value judgment. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Demi Lovato
#68. I learned the power of storytelling and the responsibility that people with influence have to speak out #Quote by Demi Lovato
Storytelling quotes by Robert  Stone
#69. We tell ourselves our own stories, selectively, in order to keep our sense of self intact. #Quote by Robert Stone
Storytelling quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#70. There's a social and human necessity for some kind of continuity, but it's not axiomatic and not something you're born into; it's something you have to work at. And one of the ways to work at it - perhaps the best - is storytelling: telling stories about yourself to others, telling stories about yourself to yourself, telling stories about others to others. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#71. Everyone has scars. Cowards conceal them. The brave reveal them. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Stalina Goodwin
#72. You must remember that your story matters. What you write has the power to save a life, sometimes that life is your own. #Quote by Stalina Goodwin
Storytelling quotes by Frank Caliendo
#73. When I used to watch vaudevillian impressionists, people like Rich Little or Frank Gorshin, I always felt like the voice was the only point. I didn't want to do that. I wanted to be of the Robin Williams or Jonathan Winters model, where observation and storytelling was important. #Quote by Frank Caliendo
Storytelling quotes by Sarah Monette
#74. 'So what happens next?'
'Everybody dies, and the people who don't get married.'
'Like any other story, then.' #Quote by Sarah Monette
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#75. At the end of your story, you get down to the purity of it all. It's like distilling something. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#76. Without language we have no past, the present is unquantifiable, and we lack a means to recognize and express the paradoxical future challenges of humanity. In absence of a shared language, we cannot understand prior generation's conflicts, desires, and achievements, nor can we communicate with future generations our essential values and the wisdom we garner through undergoing our own socioeconomic crises #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Michael Shermer
#77. Humans are pattern-seeking story-telling animals, and we are quite adept at telling stories about patterns, whether they exist or not. #Quote by Michael Shermer
Storytelling quotes by Heshan Udunuwara
#78. Asking storytellers to be genuine is like, asking a chain smoker to quit smoking . Habit of lying isn't easy to fix. Pretend as believing is like selling cigarettes. What else we could do, if we want them to be in our lives ... #Quote by Heshan Udunuwara
Storytelling quotes by Nic Pizzolatto
#79. I enjoy a third act, and I like stories with ending. A lot of my frustration with serialized storytelling is a lot of shows don't have a third act. They have an endless second act, and then they find out it's their last year and often have to hustle to invent a third act, but they were never necessarily organically meaning to begin with. #Quote by Nic Pizzolatto
Storytelling quotes by Bruce Feirstein
#80. I started as a journalist for magazines in New York City, so it was always storytelling. And moving into movies was a natural transition. #Quote by Bruce Feirstein
Storytelling quotes by John Lasseter
#81. If you're sitting in your minivan, playing your computer animated films for your children in the back seat, is it the animation that's entertaining you as you drive and listen? No, it's the storytelling. That's why we put so much importance on story. No amount of great animation will save a bad story. #Quote by John Lasseter
Storytelling quotes by Pat Conroy
#82. I can forgive almost any crime if a great story is left in its wake. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Storytelling quotes by Marvin Brown
#83. I've always had a vivid imagination in terms of storytelling, but thankfully I learned early on that imagination can be stifled or enhanced by one's writing ability - what I call word work. My goal from then on was to make sure my writing skills were up to speed with my imagination. #Quote by Marvin Brown
Storytelling quotes by Wolfgang Hilbig
#84. Even I was increasingly unclear about where I'd been, and which time I'd been in: so I had to explain myself to myself! It was for myself that I needed a justification ... but these would no longer have been stories describing the life of The People I lived among ... they were no longer legal stories. They were stories of the refuse, the refusal of this People! They were cast-aside stories, found only in the troubling places outside town. #Quote by Wolfgang Hilbig
Storytelling quotes by Will Willingham
#85. The question is what story do you need to tell, in order to give notice to that thing with fangs that keeps chewing through your insides. #Quote by Will Willingham
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#86. Memorable stories of every culture tell us what principles the citizenry saved their smiles for and shed their sorrowful tears lamenting. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#87. The fact of the matter is that you should really stop concerning yourself with writing a book because anyone can write a book that totally sucks. There is nothing special about that. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Storytelling quotes by Sakshi Tanwar
#88. I haven't thought about getting into production. I'm interested in the creative aspect of storytelling. #Quote by Sakshi Tanwar
Storytelling quotes by Jon Favreau
#89. Once you buy into a television show, there doesn't have to be resolution from week to week. You can develop characters and storylines and react to the audience, so you get more of a serialized version of storytelling where you can go much deeper into each character. It's more like a novel. #Quote by Jon Favreau
Storytelling quotes by Felicia Day
#90. 'The Last Of Us,' to me, is just amazing storytelling, because everything's from the character point of view, which even movies don't really do successfully a lot of the time. #Quote by Felicia Day
Storytelling quotes by Charles Kuralt
#91. The storytelling tradition that you bring from the South, I don't know where it arose, but it's still there. You can't go to the feed store, or the country courthouse without running into storytellers. #Quote by Charles Kuralt
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#92. The best stories are like the best burgers: big, juicy, and messy. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Amit Kalantri
#93. Magic is the most interesting art because people not necessarily want to learn to paint after they see a great painting, but they want to learn magic after they see a great magic effect. #Quote by Amit Kalantri
Storytelling quotes by Daniel Alarcon
#94. Radio, or at least the kind of radio we're proposing to do, can cut through that. It can reach people who would otherwise never hear your work, and of course I find that very notion inspiring. Radio stories are powerful because the human voice is powerful. It has been and will continue to be the most basic element of storytelling. As a novelist (and I should note that working my novel is the first thing I do in the morning and the very last thing I do before I sleep), shifting into this new medium is entirely logical. It's still narrative, only with different tools. #Quote by Daniel Alarcon
Storytelling quotes by Neil Gaiman
#95. I believe we owe it to each other to tell stories. It's as close to a credo as I have or will, I suspect, ever get. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Storytelling quotes by Nicholas Denmon
#96. Things worth telling - take time #Quote by Nicholas Denmon
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#97. Humankind's perpetual affinity for telling stories that depict the weal of life shapes and reflects human consciousness. Stories are the most ancient form of art. All societies, from the tribes scratching the earliest cave drawings, employed the art of storytelling. We hunger to hear other people's stories and to tell our own stories to an appreciative audience. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Lisa See
#98. Read a thousand books, and your words will flow like a river. #Quote by Lisa See
Storytelling quotes by Baudrillard Jean
#99. Today abstraction is no longer that of the map, the double, the mirror, or the concept. Simulation is no longer that of a territory, a referential being or substance. It is the generation by models of a real without origin or reality: A hyperreal. The territory no longer precedes the map, nor does it survive it. It is nevertheless the map that precedes the territory - precession of simulacra - that engenders the territory. #Quote by Baudrillard Jean
Storytelling quotes by Mitch Kellaway
#100. When trying to comprehend what is happening to, and through, oneself, why not question the narratives one has been handed to make sense with? This is an approach increasingly utilized within transgender knowledge production, one spearheaded by transgender people themselves. It brings to light questions about previous entries into the trans nonfiction canon, asking: Is it necessary, when writing a trans protagonist, to describe in detail a medical transition, to 'confess' conflicted feelings of body confusion? Has it even been internalized into a communal consciousness, into something resembling a trans storytelling requirement? #Quote by Mitch Kellaway
Storytelling quotes by William Shakespeare
#101. My story being done,
She gave me for my pains a world of sighs:
She swore,––in faith, twas strange, 'twas passing strange;
'Twas pitiful, 'twas wondrous pitiful:
She wish'd she had not heard it, yet she wish'd
That heaven had made her such a man: she thank'd me,
And bade me, if I had a friend that lov'd her,
I should but teach him how to tell my story.
And that would woo her. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Storytelling quotes by Ashly Lorenzana
#102. Most of the pain we feel is nothing more than a story that needs telling. #Quote by Ashly Lorenzana
Storytelling quotes by Carlton Cuse
#103. Tragedy is a great storytelling form. It worked extremely well for Shakespeare. It worked extremely well for Jim Cameron with 'Titanic.' #Quote by Carlton Cuse
Storytelling quotes by Rai Aren
#104. Infinite possibilities exist within the art of storytelling. To me, it is nothing less than the magic of creation. #Quote by Rai Aren
Storytelling quotes by Felicity Jones
#105. I'm too much left brain. I very much have an emotional response to things; I love literature and films and storytelling. I need to nourish my right side, it doesn't get a lot of exercise. #Quote by Felicity Jones
Storytelling quotes by Dorothy Allison
#106. If you just go get one of these little fine arts degrees or writing program degrees, it never forces you to confront your responsibility as narrator, whereas any of the social sciences make you at look the interaction between the storyteller and story. Hurston understood that. But then she and I write out of despised cultures that on some level we feel we're defending. #Quote by Dorothy Allison
Storytelling quotes by Karen L Milstein
#107. A story from beginning to end that might entertain, teach, or simply bore your listener. It's all in the delivery, my dear."

He got a smug look on his face as he scooted his posterior deeper into the chair and took his pipe between his teeth. "I'm just better at it than most. #Quote by Karen L Milstein
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#108. A writer's uniqueness glows and transforms the heart and the soul of a reader. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Livia Blackburne
#109. The process doesn't end there. Stories are more than just images. As you continue in the tale, you get to know the characters, motivations and conflicts that make up the core of the story. This requires more parts of the brain. Some parts process emotion. Others infer the thoughts of others, letting us empathize with their experiences. Yet other parts package the experience into memories for future reflection #Quote by Livia Blackburne
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#110. With grace and beauty, feel. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Norman Lock
#111. While my father was out boozing, she'd read to me by the stub of a candle, a thread of soot twisting upwards from its pinched, meager flame. By her voice alone, she could raise up the old stories from the bones of their words and--lilting between shades of comedy and melodrama--turn the dreary space around me into a stage for my wildest imaginings. #Quote by Norman Lock
Storytelling quotes by Sean Bean
#112. There's a wealth of literature out there which, hopefully, will be, you know, exploded in the future, and I personally find it very rewarding to be involved with classic storytelling, and sort of legendary characters. #Quote by Sean Bean
Storytelling quotes by Philip Pullman
#113. My real purpose in telling middle-school students stories was to practice telling stories. And I practiced on the greatest model of storytelling we've got, which is "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey." I told those stories many, many times. And the way I would justify it to the head teacher if he came in or to any parents who complained was, look, I'm telling these great stories because they're part of our cultural heritage. I did believe that. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Storytelling quotes by Natalie
#114. I love all history because it's storytelling. But, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Tudor dynasty. #Quote by Natalie
Storytelling quotes by Luis Cubero
#115. When developing a business story, keep in mind that the opposition character (shadow) is just as important as the audience character (hero) is. #Quote by Luis Cubero
Storytelling quotes by Vaddey Ratner
#116. A story, I had learned, through my own constant knitting and reknitting of remembered words, can lead us back to ourselves, to our lost innocence, and in the shadow it casts over our present world, we begin to understand what we only intuited in our naivete-that while all else may vanish, love is our one eternity. #Quote by Vaddey Ratner
Storytelling quotes by Lemony Snicket
#117. The holiday season is a time for storytelling, and whether you are hearing the story of a candelabra staying lit for more than a week, or a baby born in a barn without proper medical supervision, these stories often feature miracles. Miracles are like pimples, because once you start looking for them you find more than you ever dreamed you'd see, and this holiday story features any number of miracles, depending on your point of view. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Storytelling quotes by Benny Fine
#118. From early on ... we really looked at the Internet as a whole new way to provide storytelling and entertainment. #Quote by Benny Fine
Storytelling quotes by Rebecca Solnit
#119. Positive social change results mostly from connecting more deeply to the people around you than rising above them, from coordinated rather than solo action. Among the virtues that matter are those traditionally considered feminine rather than masculine, more nerd than jock: listening, respect, patience, negotiation, strategic planning, storytelling. But we like our lone and exceptional heroes, the drama of violence and virtue of muscle, or at least that's what we get, over and over, and from it we don't get much of a picture of how change actually happens and what our role in it might be, or how ordinary people matter. "Unhappy the land that needs heros" is a line of Bertolt Brecht's I've gone to dozens of times, but now I'm more inclined to think, pity the land that thinks it needs a hero, or doesn't know it has lots and what they look like. #Quote by Rebecca Solnit
Storytelling quotes by Steven Spielberg
#120. The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie, not necessarily one of my movies, brings a whole set of unique experiences. Now, through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Storytelling quotes by John Berger
#121. If every event which occurred could be given a name, there would be no need for stories. #Quote by John Berger
Storytelling quotes by Mona Simpson
#122. Gossip is essentially storytelling: storytelling about people whom we know. #Quote by Mona Simpson
Storytelling quotes by Samantha Keel
#124. I very nearly titled this book Stop Murdering the Henchmen after this trope. If I could wave a magic wand and remove a single BS lie from our annals of storytelling, it would be this one. This trope doesn't just insult a population of the disabled. It doesn't just discount the experiences of family members of loved ones suffering with a disease. This is a trope that kills real people in the real world, every day. The #Quote by Samantha Keel
Storytelling quotes by Thomas Hardy
#125. ...a true narrative like time and tide must run its course and would respect no man. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#126. Writing in the dark is hard, but you have to light your own candle and do it anyway. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#127. Not that the story need be long, but it will take a long while to make it short.
[Letter to Harrison Blake; November 16, 1857] #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Storytelling quotes by Andre Royo
#128. I feel like I get drawn to - and I know it sounds cheesy but - I love storytelling. #Quote by Andre Royo
Storytelling quotes by Barbra Streisand
#129. I prefer things that are private, so I love recording and I love making films, as a filmmaker, because it uses every bit of what you have experienced or know, whether it's graphics composition, decorating, psychology, storytelling, or whatever it is. It's a wonderful thing. #Quote by Barbra Streisand
Storytelling quotes by Jim Crace
#130. The celebrity sense of writers is something which is very tempting ... But the enthusiasm comes from the fact that it's such a natural activity, storytelling. #Quote by Jim Crace
Storytelling quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#131. MATTHEW, MARK, AND LUKE tell the story of Jesus in ways similar to one another (which is why they're often called the synoptic gospels - with a similar optic, or viewpoint). Many details differ (and the differences are quite fascinating), but it's clear the three compositions share common sources. The Fourth Gospel tells the story quite differently. These differences might disturb people who don't understand that storytelling in the ancient world was driven less by a duty to convey true details accurately and more by a desire to proclaim true meaning powerfully. The ancient editors who put the New Testament together let the differences stand as they were, so each story can convey its intended meanings in its own unique ways. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Storytelling quotes by Eric Bana
#132. I've had frustrated storytelling juices that have been lying dormant for a long time, and I guess the documentary was a way of me telling a story that I felt most qualified to tell. And I loved it, and I'd love to do something else someday, probably more narrative-based. But I'm in no rush. #Quote by Eric Bana
Storytelling quotes by Ishmael Beah
#133. I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories - I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living. #Quote by Ishmael Beah
Storytelling quotes by Nico J. Genes
#134. Yes, if the stones that we walked on could talk, they would surely tell our story. #Quote by Nico J. Genes
Storytelling quotes by Marcus Sedgwick
#135. A story has its purpose and its path. It must be told correctly for it to be understood. #Quote by Marcus Sedgwick
Storytelling quotes by Samuel Beckett
#136. [I]f you set out to mention everything you would never be done, and that's what counts, to be done, to have done. Oh, I know, even when you mention only a few of the things there are you do not get done either, I know, I know. But it's a change of muck. And if all muck is the same muck that doesn't matter, it's good to have a change of muck, to move from one heap to another, from time to time, fluttering you might say, like a butterfly, as if you were ephemeral. #Quote by Samuel Beckett
Storytelling quotes by Robbie Robertson
#137. I really have to feel a sense of freedom in my storytelling. #Quote by Robbie Robertson
Storytelling quotes by Okey Ndibe
#138. Remember this: a story that must be told never forgives silence. Speech is the mouth's debt to a story. #Quote by Okey Ndibe
Storytelling quotes by Diane Setterfield
#139. My story - my own personal story - ended before my writing began. Storytelling has only ever been a way of filling in the time since everything finished. #Quote by Diane Setterfield
Storytelling quotes by Kristen Ciccarelli
#140. The story of a girl who hunted dragons to soothe the hurt in her heart. The story of the dragon who changed her. #Quote by Kristen Ciccarelli
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#141. The story of what it means to be human is never complete. Every generation will produce its own share of comedies and tragedies, fools and geniuses. What the Greeks started the rest of the world will continue to build upon. The old stories will continue to explicate where we came from, while the new stories will illuminate in what direction humankind trends. The collection of future stories of humanity will add to the cumulative library of stories that past writers told, an anthology of collaborative stories will shed light upon the singleness of the human spirit in its aspirations, powers, vicissitudes, and wisdom. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Martin Scorsese
#142. There is something particularly unique about the films of Hong Sang-soo ... it's got to do with his masterful sense of storytelling ... as the critic Manny Farber once said of Hitchcock's ROPE Hong Sang-soo's pictures unpeel like an orange. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Storytelling quotes by Emma Richler
#143. I need to tell you a story, a tale of fate and emergence. #Quote by Emma Richler
Storytelling quotes by Hassan Blasim
#144. The operation would be in a week...I didn't know if I would survive. How I longed to go back to reading! There was nowhere I longed to be more than the university campus. I was preparing for a master's on fantasy literature. I was interested in why the country's literature did not include this distinctive genre. I had this great passion for studying and writing, which they explained in my household with the story of the umbilical cord. When I was born, and at my father's request, my elder sister buried my umbilical cord in the courtyard of her primary school. My father attributed my {brother's} academic failure to the fact that my mother buried his umbilical cord in the garden of our house. #Quote by Hassan Blasim
Storytelling quotes by Jens Lekman
#145. I make a living from storytelling - if you're a public person and you sing songs about getting married to get a visa, and you are actually doing that, you're gonna end up in trouble. #Quote by Jens Lekman
Storytelling quotes by John Logan
#146. Whether you're writing a horror show or a James Bond film, I think what bubbles beneath is interesting characterization. The colors that emerge through storytelling is what a dramatist does. There's always got to be something bubbling underneath that will erupt at some point. #Quote by John Logan
Storytelling quotes by Ashley Newell
#147. Zac dangled his legs off the edge of the building, hanging onto every word I said as though I were some old time bard telling an epic war tale. I tried to be as detailed as possible, and I knew that I was doing a good job when he'd lean back and shut his eyes. He'd breathe slowly and watch the pictures that I painted for him with my words. He'd smile, not a cunning toothy one, but a sincere smile that comes only from being truly happy. I'd sit across from him and just watch his reactions. We could be up there for hours. I would see the sunset across his face and be as captivated with his skin's changing colours as he was with my everyday stories. That's when I learned to dislike winters. #Quote by Ashley Newell
Storytelling quotes by Wendy Jean
#148. Mama always did tell a good story, built a solid background, then deftly lead her engrossed listener through a series of doorways, enticing them in before delivering the coup de grâce. #Quote by Wendy Jean
Storytelling quotes by Andrzej Wajda
#149. ( ... ) a director should tell a story that is close to his own existential experience. #Quote by Andrzej Wajda
Storytelling quotes by Tom Bissell
#150. I guess I would say that most of what I've learned about storytelling derives from novels and short stories. I cannot think of a novel or story, or a novelist or story writer, who thinks in terms of three-act structure. #Quote by Tom Bissell
Storytelling quotes by Melissa McCarthy
#151. I think there's so many points of view that you want to make sure your stories are being told from men and women ... you get all of the different backgrounds. You don't want every story being told from the same point of view. So just for better storytelling, I'm like, 'Yes, please, bring some more ladies on.' #Quote by Melissa McCarthy
Storytelling quotes by Mia Couto
#152. Listen, and you will realize that we are made not from cells or from atoms. We are made from stories. #Quote by Mia Couto
Storytelling quotes by Terence Winter
#153. One of the nicest things I ever read about our show was that a critic felt 'Boardwalk Empire' could be the beginning of the blur between television and cinema, because the production values are so high and the storytelling is so compelling. #Quote by Terence Winter
Storytelling quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#154. As I quietly stare off into space, eyes glazed over and brow thoughtfully taut, know that I am going about my business. I am a storyteller. Daydreaming is the best part of my job. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Storytelling quotes by John Truby
#155. The multistrand plot is clearly a much more simultaneous form of storytelling, emphasizing the group, or the minisociety, and how the characters compare. #Quote by John Truby
Storytelling quotes by Alan Kay
#156. Scratch the surface in a typical boardroom and we're all just cavemen with briefcases, hungry for a wise person to tell us stories. #Quote by Alan Kay
Storytelling quotes by Michelle Phan
#157. If you go on my Instagram, you're not going to see the same content you'll see on my YouTube. Instagram has become the new magazine. It's much more editorial and about perfect moments that are captured. Snapchats are funny, real moments that you want to share. On YouTube, it's more structured, more storytelling. #Quote by Michelle Phan
Storytelling quotes by Ashwin Sanghi
#158. Oral storytelling goes back so long ago, and those stories that were told orally were always layered and changed with time. #Quote by Ashwin Sanghi
Storytelling quotes by Peter Landesman
#159. To me, film is the most complete method of storytelling. #Quote by Peter Landesman
Storytelling quotes by James Cameron
#160. Storytelling is storytelling. You still play by the same narrative rules. The technology is completely different. I don't use one piece of technology that I used when I started directing. #Quote by James Cameron

Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#162. The power of classical music turns my words into fire. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by James P. Carse
#163. Storytellers do not convert their listeners; they do not move them into the territory of a superior truth. Ignoring the issue of truth and falsehood altogether, they offer only vision. Storytelling is therefore not combative; it does not succeed or fail. A story cannot be obeyed. Instead of placing one body of knowledge against another, storytellers invite us to return from knowledge to thinking, from a bounded way of looking to an horizonal way of seeing. #Quote by James P. Carse
Storytelling quotes by Brian Hall
#164. Talking with friends about books harks back to the original impulse behind storytelling, the forging of human bonds. We have told ourselves stories not just, in Joan Didion's phrase, in order to live, but in order to live with one another. #Quote by Brian Hall
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#165. We write our life stories detailing our worldly experiences in order to expose the unconscious mind to the world of conscious appreciation. By extending our consciousness, we bring material insights to our emotional forefront. Words lay the foundation for truth telling. The music of our words allows us to train the lightness of language upon the darkness of our own humanity. The taxonomy of the human mind empowers us to employ the magic of language to share information, suggest action, speculate upon the future, reminisce about pastimes, lance our most ragged feelings, and pontificate, with a drunkard's sense of punchy assuredness, upon any topic that fits our fancy. We tell stories in order to mark our existence, to share both our triumphs and failures, and teach wisdom gained from our previous skirmishes in a convoluted world. In absence of our stories, we do not exist in our own minds or in the minds of our people. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Wallace J. Nichols
#166. neuroscience confirms that storytelling has unique power to change opinions and behavior. #Quote by Wallace J. Nichols
Storytelling quotes by Luis Cubero
#167. The focus of your presentation is the audience. You are missing the point if you focus on a product or your company. #Quote by Luis Cubero
Storytelling quotes by Jonathan Gottschall
#168. Why do stories cluster around a few big themes, and why do they hew so closely to problem structure? Why are stories this way instead of all the other ways they could be? I think that problem structure reveals a major function of storytelling. It suggests that the human mind was shaped for story, so that it could be shaped by story. #Quote by Jonathan Gottschall
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#169. We are the thoughts we choose to keep. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Kate Klise
#170. As writers, we must keep throwing problems at our characters. Conflict is the heart of good storytelling. Hiking in nature along a twisting trail can remind us what a good story feels like. It's the opposite of a treadmill - or an interstate highway. #Quote by Kate Klise
Storytelling quotes by Bill Plympton
#171. Animation can be a full spectrum of different storytelling techniques and different genres. I think it's sad that there is only one audience that the studios are aiming for and that's the kid audience. It's really tragic that they don't' make films for older people. #Quote by Bill Plympton
Storytelling quotes by Justin Kirk
#172. No great television show has ever rested on just one person. They're all about great ensembles and storytelling. #Quote by Justin Kirk
Storytelling quotes by Kevin Spacey
#173. Storytelling helps us understand each other, translate the issues of our times, and the tools of theater and film can be powerful in helping young people to develop communication/collaboration skills, let alone improving their own confidence. #Quote by Kevin Spacey
Storytelling quotes by Betty MacDonald
#175. Miss Appleby, her library books, and her story-telling sessions were very popular with all the children in Heavenly Valley. To Nancy and Plum they were a magic carpet that whisked them out of the dreariness and drudgery of their lives at Mrs. Monday's and transported them to palaces in India, canals in Holland, pioneer stockades during the Indian wars, cattle ranches in the West, mountains in Switzerland, pagodas in China, igloos in Alaska, jungles in Africa, castles in England, slums in London, gardens in Japan, or most important of all, into happy homes where there were mothers and fathers and no Mrs. Mondays or Marybelles. #Quote by Betty MacDonald
Storytelling quotes by Holly Golightly
#176. I am and will always be a HUGE Star Wars Geek and wanted to study film making. I really am not a fan of writing- I prefer storytelling and rather jump to storyboards to relay my vision then a lot of wordy words. #Quote by Holly Golightly
Storytelling quotes by Margaret Atwood
#177. But I have already told the beginning, so right now it's the middle. And Zeb is in the middle of the story about Zeb. He is in the middle of his own story.
I am not in this part of the story; it hasn't come to the part with me. But I'm waiting, far off in the future. I'm waiting for the story of Zeb to join up with mine. The story of Toby. The story I am in right now, with you. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Storytelling quotes by Robert McKee
#178. Quality storytelling inspires quality dialogue. #Quote by Robert McKee
Storytelling quotes by Sanhita Baruah
#179. Fictions are realities we don't think of, that are happening to people we know nothing about. #Quote by Sanhita Baruah
Storytelling quotes by Sarah Paulson
#180. Sometimes I think on television, you use maybe a tenth of what you are able to do. So it's nice to go, 'Well, I'm gonna take two months and reinvest in acting and storytelling.' You don't get to do that on television. #Quote by Sarah Paulson
Storytelling quotes by Michael Franti
#181. 'Star Wars' is mythology. It's like Greek mythology or Shakespeare. It's the story of good versus evil over a very long span of time. The storytelling is universal and timeless. #Quote by Michael Franti
Storytelling quotes by Lloyd Alexander
#182. If a storyteller worried about the facts - my dear Lucian, how could he ever get at the truth? #Quote by Lloyd Alexander
Storytelling quotes by Philip Zaleski
#183. Everyone and everything needed to be raised to its highest level – the teacher must become a mage, the husband a knight errant, the labor a hero in a sacred drama – intensified, rarefied, baptized in the turbulent waters of restlessness, curiosity, and ardor. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Storytelling quotes by Doris Lessing
#184. That a work of the imagination has to be "really" about some problem is, again, an heir of Socialist Realism. To write a story for the sake of storytelling is frivolous, not to say reactionary.

The demand that stories must be "about" something is from Communist thinking and, further back, from religious thinking, with its desire for self-improvement books as simple-minded as the messages on samplers.

The phrase "political correctness" was born as Communism was collapsing. I do not think this was chance. I am not suggesting that the torch of Communism has been handed on to the political correctors. I am suggesting that habits of mind have been absorbed, often without knowing it.

There is obviously something very attractive about telling other people what to do: I am putting it in this nursery way rather than in more intellectual language because I see it as nursery behavior. Art - the arts generally - are always unpredictable, maverick, and tend to be, at their best, uncomfortable. Literature, in particular, has always inspired the House committees, the Zhdanovs, the fits of moralizing, but, at worst, persecution. It troubles me that political correctness does not seem to know what its exemplars and predecessors are; it troubles me more that it may know and does not care.

Does political correctness have a good side? Yes, it does, for it makes us re-examine attitudes, and that is always useful. The trouble is that, with all #Quote by Doris Lessing
Storytelling quotes by Terry Brooks
#185. If you're a real writer, you infuse your characters with truths from your own life. The old saw is, Write What You Know. I think it equally appropriate to add. Write Who You Are. Give your readers little insights into how you think. Share your feelings and beliefs in a way that makes other question their own, thereby requiring them in some small way to reevaluate their lives. Good storytelling compels us to do this. #Quote by Terry Brooks
Storytelling quotes by Sherman Alexie
#186. I grew up in a storytelling culture, a tribal culture, but also in an American storytelling culture. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Storytelling quotes by Marcus Sedgwick
#187. Stories twist and turn and grow and meet and give birth to other stories. Here and there, one story touches another, and a familiar character, sometimes the hero, walks over the bridge from one story into another. #Quote by Marcus Sedgwick
Storytelling quotes by Abigail Thomas
#188. It's easy to find that five or six hours have sped by without my noticing. I am having fun. This is not my world, these are not my fears. Supernatural is great storytelling, and it is not my story. #Quote by Abigail Thomas
Storytelling quotes by Jeanne Liedtka
#189. Storytelling is the difference between solving a problem and creating a cause. Lists solve a problem: Here's an issue we face, let's create a pro and con list about how to solve it and then pick the best option. A cause is something that ignites people and unites people. That is what a good story does: It creates a cause. #Quote by Jeanne Liedtka
Storytelling quotes by Catherine Robinson-Walker
#190. The Leadership Seduction of storytelling invites self-pity, exaggerates one's importance, and encourages inaction. #Quote by Catherine Robinson-Walker
Storytelling quotes by Sil Lai Abrams
#191. True revolutionary change begins by first challenging yourself -- not the world. Until you own your story and the complexities of your experience, no matter how much you may strain against it, you will still be enslaved -- if not by your oppressor, by your past. #Quote by Sil Lai Abrams
Storytelling quotes by Bob Shacochis
#192. With iron and blood, it seems, and from the rich depths of the earth, John Griswold has fashioned a classic American novel, its dignified intonations of our young nation's sweat and tears evocative of the indelible storytelling of Dos Passos, Frank Norris, and Upton Sinclair. #Quote by Bob Shacochis
Storytelling quotes by Scott Eastwood
#193. I grew up on movie sets, getting to see storytelling happen up close. #Quote by Scott Eastwood
Storytelling quotes by Luis Cubero
#194. Your entire presentation is the story. #Quote by Luis Cubero
Storytelling quotes by Robert McKee
#195. A culture cannot evolve without honest, powerful storytelling. When a society repeatedly experiences glossy, hollowed-out, pseudo-stories, it degenerates. We need true satires and tragedies, dramas and comedies that shine a clean light into the dingy corners of the human psyche and society. #Quote by Robert McKee
Storytelling quotes by Paul Thomas Anderson
#196. I've never been a fan of whimsical or confusing storytelling. #Quote by Paul Thomas Anderson
Storytelling quotes by Jonathan Gottschall
#197. Fiction is usually seen as escapist entertainment ... But it's hard to reconcile the escapist theory of fiction with the deep patterns we find in the art of storytelling ... Our various fictional worlds are
on the whole
horrorscapes. Fiction may temporarily free us from our troubles, but it does so by ensnaring us in new sets of troubles
in imaginary worlds of struggle and stress and mortal woe. #Quote by Jonathan Gottschall
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
#198. Sometimes you just have to be your own rockstar. #Quote by A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by Maarten Schafer
#199. In this time of 'information overload', people do not need more information. They want a story they can relate to. #Quote by Maarten Schafer
Storytelling quotes by Tahir Shah
#200. My father never told us how the stories worked. He didn't reveal the layers, the nuggets of information, the fragments of truth and fantasy. He didn't need to
because, given the right conditions, the stories activated, sowing themselves. #Quote by Tahir Shah
