Stories Quotes

Nine of the best book quotes about stories
  1. #1
    “A small, quiet, grassroots movement that starts with each of us saying, “My story matters because I matter.” A movement where we can take to the streets with our messy, imperfect, wild, stretch-marked, wonderful, heartbreaking, grace-filled, and joyful lives. A movement fueled by the freedom that comes when we stop pretending that everything is okay when it isn’t. A call that rises up from our bellies when we find the courage to celebrate those intensely joyful moments even though we’ve convinced ourselves that savoring happiness is inviting disaster.”
  2. #2
    “If we can share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can’t survive.”
  3. #3
    “Each of the stories we tell and hear is like a small flicker of light--when we have enough of them, we will set the world on fire. But I don’t think we can do it without story. It doesn’t matter what community is in question or what the conflict appears to be on the surface, resolution and change will require people to own, share, and rumble with stories.”
  4. #4
    “We don’t want to betray anyone--we don’t want to be the first to get curious and ask questions or challenge the stories. We ask ourselves, How can I love and protect my family if I’m rumbling with these hard truths? For me, the answer to that question is another question: How can I love and protect my family if I’m not rumbling with these hard truths?”
  5. #5
    “The most dangerous stories we make up are the narratives that diminish our inherent worthiness. We must reclaim the truth about our lovability, divinity, and creativity.”
  6. #6
    “Every story matters...We are all worthy of telling our stories and having them heard. We all need to be seen and honored in the same way that we all need to breathe.”
  7. #7
    “You will observe that the stories told are all about money-seekers, not about money-finders.”
  8. #8
    “What a tale their terror tells.”
  9. #9
    “Do you know,” Peter asked, “why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.”
