Myth is an attempt to narrate a whole human experience, of which the purpose is too deep, going too deep in the blood and soul, for mental explanation or description.
— D. H. Lawrence

All the gossip and craziness becomes a kind of sustained narrative which, in turn, can become history. It's scary.
Barbara Kruger narrative quote

To have frequent recourse to narrative betrays great want of imagination.
— Lord Chesterfield

Narrative is linear, but action has breadth and depth as well as height and is solid.
— Thomas Carlyle

The narrative impulse is always with us; we couldn't imagine ourselves through a day without it.
— narrative quotation by Robert Coover
