Stories are powerful. The stories we live affect all of those around us. Fiction allows us to experiment with emotions and relationships. It allows us to see ourselves in other stories. Hopefully, this also challenges us to ensure the story we are living is the kind of story we enjoy. A story of love. A story of life lived.
And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can’t go back to being normal; you can’t go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.Donald Miller
