“​I think storytelling is a thing of beauty, and also very difficult. It’s a craft you have to continue to work at.”

-James Gray

The beauty lies in every story and the most important thing is to feel and connect with it. This is because stories require a real atmosphere to express itself. We too need to inspire our inner storyteller to make people visualise something that do not have a proper existence. Here are some quotes to inspire your inner storyteller:

“Great stories happen to those who can tell them.” 

-Ira Glas
“The human species thinks in metaphors and learns through stories.” 

-Mary Catherine Bateson
“Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form.” 

-Jean Luc Godard
“Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it.”

 -Hannah Arendt
“The stories we tell literally make theworld. If you want to change the world, you need to change your story. This truth applies both to individuals and institutions.” 

-Michael Margolis
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

 -Maya Angelou


  1. Aren’t stories lovely? I liked the quotes you shared in both Storytelling 1 and 2. Thank you. One of my favorite story telling quotes is from Kurt Vonnegut (from his book Psalm Sunday.) “This is the secret to good story telling: to lie, but keep the arithmetic straight.”
