“Stories are the creative conversion of life itself into a more powerful,
clearer, more meaningful experience. They are the currency of human contact.”

    “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.”
                                                                  John Lasseter

 magic, and worst of all, no heart.“

 lost and won than by the stories it loves and believes in.”

16
"We are our stories. We compress years of experience, thought, and emotion
into a few compact narratives that we convey to others and tell to ourselves.
That has always been true. But personal narrative has become more prevalent,
and perhaps more urgent, in a time of abundance, when many of us are freer to
seek a deeper understanding of ourselves and our purpose."          Daniel Pink
17


     “Great stories happen to those who can tell them.”

20

21




 “Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.”

     images siphoning story through our minds the way a fish siphons
     water through its gills. We cannot think without language.”

“Man is eminently a storyteller. His search for a purpose, a cause, an
ideal, a mission and the like is largely a search for a plot and a pattern
in the development of his life story - a story that is basically without
meaning or pattern.”                                           Eric Hoffer
39




 “Stories are our primary tools of learning and teaching, the repositories
 of our lore and legends. They bring order into our confusing world.
 Think about how many times a day you use stories to pass along data,
 insights, memories or common-sense advice.”
                                                  Edward Miller, writing coach

     “We all live in suspense, from day to day, from hour to hour:
     in other words, we are the hero of our own story.”
                                                     Mary McCarthy
