Famous quotes containing the word stories:

    A curious thing about atrocity stories is that they mirror, instead of the events they purport to describe, the extent of the hatred of the people that tell them.
    Still, you can’t listen unmoved to tales of misery and murder.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    the tide lays down its wet throat
    and alters the land to island—even as I watch
    I say there is no shore
    apart from stories of it,
    no smoke, no hut, no beacon ...
    Lynn Emanuel (b. 1949)

    Long before I wrote stories, I listened for stories. Listening for them is something more acute than listening to them. I suppose it’s an early form of participation in what goes on. Listening children know stories are there. When their elders sit and begin, children are just waiting and hoping for one to come out, like a mouse from its hole.
    Eudora Welty (b. 1909)
