The Power Of Sto­ries

The People's Friend - - Real Life -

“Sto­ry­telling binds us to­gether. It starts to do that when we are chil­dren, lis­ten­ing to sto­ries read to us by par­ents and grand­par­ents, and it con­tin­ues through our life­times.

“Sto­ries teach us about the world; they re­mind us of what it is to be the other per­son, and that helps us de­velop our sen­si­tiv­ity to the feel­ings of oth­ers.

“Above all, per­haps, sto­ries in­trigue us. We are an in­quis­i­tive species – we love to find out about the world; we love ad­ven­ture; we love to learn. Sto­ries do all that. Sit back and en­joy it.”
