“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees
"All great literature is one of two stories; a man goes on a journey or a stranger comes to town."
Do you like listening to and reading stories? There are lots and lots of great stories to watch and listen to, some of them connected with tradition and religion, the others with personal life or the ones to be used at school. Each of them deliver a message, bring people closer, create emotional bonds or just simply connect.
Stories are powerful.
- Stories are authentic human experiences. They are timeless links to ancient traditions, legends, myths, and symbols. They connect us to universal truths.
- Stories are about collaboration; they transcend generations and engage us through emotions, thus connect us to others.
- Through stories we share passions, sadness and joys. They allow us to communicate, overcoming our differences. Stories allow us to understand ourselves better and to find our commonality with others.
