Storytelling-1

According to Alan Moore,“Artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.”
Storytelling is the most effective and beautiful way to convey others your imagination, beliefs and thoughts. The world of fiction amuses us and it is indeed true that we can relate it to ourselves closely. The creatively written stories expresses itself amazingly and this is what makes it look so real.                                                                                                         Here are a few beautiful quotes on storytelling-

“Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving.”                              -Madeleine L’Engle

“If you wish to influence an individual or a group to embrace a particular value in their daily lives, tell them a compelling story.”                                                                                                -Annette Simmons

“After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.”                                                                                                                                                                   -Phillip Pullman

“The shortest distance between a human being and the truth is a story.”                                  -Anthony de Mello

“Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.”                              -Hannah Arendt
