Myths are stories that express meaning, morality or motivation. Whether they are true or not is irrelevant.

Michael Shermer

True love stories never have endings.

Richard Bach

When I write stories I am like someone who is in her own country, walking along streets that she has known since she was a child, between walls and trees that are hers.

Natalia Ginzburg

All stories interest me, and some haunt me until I end up writing them. Certain themes keep coming up: justice, loyalty, violence, death, political and social issues, freedom.

Isabel Allende

I love sharing my stories and experiences with people and connecting to them on both a humorous and emotional level.

Tori Spelling

They were written on cheap blue notebooks bought by poor women. I'm interested in folk tales in the way that medicine and magic in women's stories are all kind of combined.

Alice Hoffman

We make the oldest stories new when we succeed, and we are trapped by the old stories when we fail.

Greil Marcus

Human behavior in the midst of hardship caught my attention very early on, and my first stories were all pictures, no words.

Wally Lamb

The work of a psychotherapist involves being empathic and insightful with one's patients without getting too lost in their painful stories to be helpful.

Pamela Stephenson

I can't change the past, and I don't think I would. I don't expect to be understood. I like what I've written, the stories and two novels. If I had to give up what I've written in order to be clear of this disease, I wouldn't do it.

Harold Brodkey

I try and make little stories. Whether it's with a pencil or with bits of records, it's really the same thing.

Eric San

From Ernest Hemingway's stories, I learned to listen within my stories for what went unsaid by my characters.

Nadine Gordimer

That's what heroic stories do for us. They show us the way. They remind us of the good we are capable of.

Sam Raimi

Writing is writing, and stories are stories. Perhaps the only true genres are fiction and non-fiction. And even there, who can be sure?

Tanith Lee

Be amusing: never tell unkind stories; above all, never tell long ones.

Benjamin Disraeli

Some stories, you use up. Others use you up.

Chuck Palahniuk

I have always thought it morally unacceptable to kill stories, not to run stories, that people have risked their lives to get.

Christiane Amanpour

I wanted to write stories for myself. At first it was purely an aesthetic thing about craft. I just wanted to become good at the art of something. And writing was very private.

Amy Tan

I don't think there's a shortage of material in the world. Or in my head. I just pray for continued good health, because I've got other stories to tell.

Richard Russo

I looked back at some of my earlier published stories with genuine horror and remorse. I got thinking, How many extant copies might there be, who owns them, and do they keep their doors locked?

Richard Russo

I want to present interesting stories that don't qualify themselves just by virtue of their ethnographic type.

Ajay Naidu

This journey is not over. Our education initiatives have so much momentum, and we're committed to sharing even more stories from the Arctic when we return.

Ann Bancroft

I'm a sci-fi girl. If I can have anything in life, I'd want tons of great science-fiction movies and stories. It's so progressive, beautiful, and imaginative.

Zoe Saldana

I could read at a very early age and I loved stories, losing myself in stories, novels.

Heather Donahue

As a child, my mother told me lots of fairy stories, many her own invention. She, too, tended to reverse the norm.

Tanith Lee

It's like Tolstoy said. Happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story.

Haruki Murakami

To us, basing stories on christianity is the same as basing stories on Roman mythology, Native American folklore, or unsubstantiated government conspiracies.

Richard King

It simply is not cost affective to cover stories from independent sources.

Ben Edwards

Writing detective stories is about writing light literature, for entertainment. It isn't primarily a question of writing propaganda or classical literature.

Steig Larsson

Many of my short stories (all unpublished) were horror, and the novel I'd just finished was horror, too.

George Stephen

God invented mankind because he loved silly stories.

Ralph Steadman

History is full of really good stories. That's the main reason I got into this racket: I want to make the argument that history is interesting.

Sarah Vowell

I was a visual artist primarily and a writer, even from a very young age. I wrote a lot of stories and poetry and... I had a desire to create always. And I always had a desire to show my work.

P. J. Harvey

I just want to be a part of great stories, whether I'm part of an amazing ensemble cast or I'm leading it or the antagonist or whatever.

Zoe Saldana

It is a good idea to know which publishers publish which stories. For example, there is no sense in sending a picture book text to a publisher who does not publish picture books.

Margaret Mahy

There's a joy in writing short stories, a wonderful sense of reward when you pull certain things off.

Tobias Wolff

Actually, I love mythology. When I was a kid I was obsessed with myth and I wanted to be a mythologist when I grew up. Then I realized I really just like stories.

Amber Benson

Showing young children in these communities, that there are outlets for their feelings, that there is room in a space for their stories to be told, and that they will be applauded - and it's not about ego, it's about connection: that their pain is everybody else's pain.

Tom Hiddleston

Some stories are true that never happened.

Elie Wiesel

Lawyers didn't seriously get involved in the Watergate stories until quite late, when we realized we were on to something.

Bob Woodward

My stories run up and bite me in the leg -- I respond by writing them down - everything that goes on during the bite. When I finish, the idea lets go and runs off.

Ray Bradbury

I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can't truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.

Zig Ziglar

Our stories are different; our pain is the same.

Betty Buckley

What are these fundamental principles, if they are not atoms? Stories. And they give me hope.

Neil Gaiman

They were kind of like little Stephen King stories... but these go back many hundreds of years.

Michael McKean

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.

Gilda Radner

You see, I was told stories, we were all told stories as kids in Nigeria. We had to tell stories that would keep one another interested, and you weren't allowed to tell stories that everybody else knew. You had to dream up new ones.

Ben Okri

We're all made of stories. When they finally put us underground, the stories are what will go on. Not forever, perhaps, but for a time. It's a kind of immortality, I suppose, bounded by limits, it's true, but then so's everything.

Charles de Lint

People don't want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messed cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.

Chuck Palahniuk

I read all these stories that I don't know anything about politics. But I must know something. I've had some good victories in Congress, and I've survived this town for four years.

Donald T. Regan

I read some of my stories recently and thought, 'How in the hell did I get away with that?' I had some really raw cynicism in some of them.

Carl Barks

I've always thought my poems told stories.

Douglas Dunn

But at the same time, I have trouble keeping things out of books, which is why I don't write short stories because they turn into novels.

Jonathan Coe

We all had lots of stories of our sad experiences - they mourned the death of my wife with me - but we were hopeful that the children would return.

Otto Frank

I was always inventing characters and making up stories.

Suzanne Vega

Among the reasons people keep sad stories to themselves is that they do not want anyone to feel sorry for them. I don't. I don't want you to feel sorry for me.

Judith Moore

I look for those moments that are "gee whiz" moments. There's some "gee whiz" stories in our show, and they can't be written like A-1 in the Times. They have to be written more like Page 6 in the Post.

Shepard Smith

I need to keep my story count high. I'm trying to get as many stories in my hour as is humanly possible. We're telling more stories in our hour than any national newscast has in the history of this business, I think.

Shepard Smith

We learned a verse of this and that and we were having fun with the songs. Tommy would make up stories to go along with them and I would yell at him, 'Hey, stupid, that's not right,' and he was like a silly kid trying to impress.

Dick Smothers

I don't want to tell your story because you're a insensitive, self-centered moron. I've told a lot of stories about young people, and I always feel there's hope.

Joel Schumacher

All love stories are the same.

Paulo Coelho

I'd love to do some bedtime stories for kids or that kind of thing. But with the demands of the shooting schedule and balancing the demands of being a single mother, it's a wonder you can squeeze in anything.

Roma Downey

For four years, I listened to stories of intelligence failures, and it wasn't due to incompetence of anyone in the system, but that the system is so arcane.

Charles F. Bass

If you look at my last songs and first short stories, there is a real connection between them.

Kazuo Ishiguro

If you're older you want to tell stories about the pool of human life and living and to communicate, not only to your age group but to do an age group that can begin to understand, that has enough experience of life far beyond the taste of life.

Nick Nolte

There are a thousand weird untold stories in the Australian film industry, this has been one of them.

Yahoo Serious

Can you imagine what it would be like if all the Aussie film talent was able to make Australian stories?

Yahoo Serious

In all love stories the theme is love and tragedy, so by writing these types of stories, I have to include tragedy.

Nicholas Sparks

We cheer everyone who goes off to Hollywood and tells American stories but telling Australian stories is the greatest thing you can do.

Yahoo Serious

The American formula things are out there but they don't have any stories to tell - we have all the stories to tell - but they're all formula.

Yahoo Serious

Stories are the single most powerful tool in a leader's toolkit.

Howard Gardner

All the papers contained nothing but fantastic stories about the war. However, for several months we had been accustomed to war talk. We had so often packed our service trunks that the whole thing had become tedious.

Manfred von Richthofen

I brought in the stories many times. I don't just do animation.

Ray Harryhausen

Every age sort of has its own history. History is really the stories that we retell to ourselves to make them relevant to every age. So we put our own values and our own spin on it.

Terry Jones

When I was little, I always used to like to tell stories cuz it was entertaining to people.

Slick Rick

My best stories come out of nowhere, with no concern for form at all.

Barry Hannah

I can think of no one that my grandparents knew, that told me stories and that I experienced myself, had any sense of social inferiority growing up in segregated Washington. None whatsoever.

Ed Smith

The subject matter of the stories on the surface... there seem to be a number of stories about travel.

Kenneth Koch

Love stories are probably all I've ever been able to write or want to write.

Wally Lamb

I discovered that in a story I could safely dream any dream, hope any hope, go anywhere I pleased any time I pleased, fight any foe, win or lose, live or die. My stories created a safe experimental learning place.

Donald Davis

I must have been 3 years old or less, and I remember paging through these comics, trying to figure out the stories. I couldn't read the words, so I made up my own stories.

Daniel Clowes

These few dollars you lose here today are going to buy you stories to tell your children and great-grandchildren. This could be one of the big moments in your life; don't make it your last!

John Dillinger

Rather than doing the kind of fact-checking that normally goes with a story, you ran with certain stories for not wanting to get beat. There's a pressure that exists in your profession. I would be surprised in any honest exchange that you say that doesn't exist.

Rahm Emanuel

All of us have read the stories about young people in Hollywood and all the challenges they have to confront there, and I think that artistically, I really didn't understand the commercial side of the film business, so I went back to a purely artistic setting.

Marisa Tomei

Throughout the ages, stories with certain basic themes have recurred over and over, in widely disparate cultures; emerging like the goddess Venus from the sea of our unconscious.

Joan D. Vinge

You've just got to focus on excellence and try not to be distracted by the news and the rumors and the absurdities of the stories that were coming out.

James Daly

I don't think I'd want to sit down and listen to people's stories all day long.

Joan Severance

We've always lived in dark times. There has always been a range of human experience from the sublime to the brutal, and stories reflect it. It's no less brutal now; each age has its horrors.

Terri Windling

I don't think they knew exactly where they were going with the character, but they lay those stories out ahead of time, so they had some idea where they wanted it to go.

David Selby

I want to tell stories for everyone, primarily.

Morris Chestnut

All of us are made up of the stories that we listen to, the ones we disagree with and the ones that we agree with.

Stanley Crouch

I'm not sure whay I've been drawn to this subject, except that murder is a subject that has always drawn people for as long as people have been telling stories.

Donna Tartt

When I was a teenager, 'Playboy' was the most interesting magazine in the world, and not just for the playmates. I liked the interviews and the stories, and all that, but nowadays most of the stuff in there doesn't interest me.

Chester Brown

With this first novel, I am just above the foothills, but I see the path to the top, and it is my desire to write compelling stories about everything that I find of interest.

Guy Johnson

The last copy of the Chicago Daily News I picked up had three crime stories on its front page. But by comparison to the gaudy days, this is small-time stuff. Chicago is as full of crooks as a saw with teeth, but the era when they ruled the city is gone forever.

John Gunther

First of all, we were never not speaking. It's gotten so blown out of proportion. It was a very straightforward difference of opinion. I think because we were so private and refused to talk about it, these stories just got out of control.

Julie Nixon Eisenhower

We were growing up in West Virginia. Everybody was poor there in the southern part of the state. It was like growing up in the Great Depression from the stories I hear people tell. Everybody was poor and so we didn't know that we were any different from anybody else.

James Green Somerville

What does it feel like to be a parent? What does it feel like to be a child? And that's what stories do. They bring you there. They offer a dramatic explanation, which is always different from an expository explanation.

Richard Russo

I love old books. They tell you stories about their use. You can see where the fingerprints touched the pages as they held the book open. You can see how long they lingered on each page by the finger stains.

Jack Bowman

I didn't learn stories, I just absorbed them.

Donald Davis
