Quote of the day

Stories

“Stories are among the most intimate and personal things we have. Stories touch the imagination and are deeply implanted in one’s psyche and consciousness. Without stories there can be no culture. Without stories there can be no imagination. Without an imagination there is no vitality to human existence. Without that vitality humans are mere robots to be programmed, pacified, and subjugated into parasitic consumers.”

Paul Krause

      Not only do we learn about others and the world around us through stories, but we also develop our ability to sympathize with others. It’s part of becoming human.
