Storytelling Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about storytelling
  1. #1
    If you are a dreamer, come in,
    If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
    A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
    If you’re a pretender come sit by my fire
    For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
    Come in!
    Come in!
  2. #2

  3. #3
    “I would like to believe this is a story I’m telling. I need to believe it. I must believe it. Those who can believe that such stories are only stories have a better chance. If it’s a story I’m telling, then I have control over the ending. Then there will be an ending, to the story, and real life will come after it. I can pick up where I left off.”
  4. #4
    “So tell me, since it makes no factual difference to you and you can’t prove the question either way, which story do you prefer?”
  5. #5
    “The world isn’t just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no? And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no? Doesn’t that make life a story?”
