Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving. Why does anybody tell a story? It does indeed have something to do with faith, faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically.

-Madeleine L'Engle

Even amongst the honest, a healthy life story involves a certain amount of necessary and inspired deception, and even the most pathologically honest person cannot help but to make some of it up. The best life stories do not tell us what we want to hear, nor the literal exact truth, but what we need to hear.

-Jake Sapiens

I love Madeleine L'Engle. It's about time to dig out "A Wrinkle in Time" again.
