"Great stories happen to those who can tell them."
– Ira Glass
"Stories create community, enable us to see through the eyes of other people, and open us to the claims of others."
– Peter Forbes
"When we tell stories to others that have really helped us shape our thinking and way of life, we can have the same effect on them too."
"Stories are memory aids, instruction manuals and moral compasses."
– Aleks Krotoski, The Guardian
