And The Stories Quote: Yes, we could talk to you for days on end about all the bad first dates. Those are stories. Funny stories. Awkward stories. Stories we love to share, because by sharing them, we get something out of the hour or two we wasted on the wrong person. But that's all bad first dates are: short stories.

Quotes about And The Stories: We are shaped by stories from the first moments of life, and even before. Stories tell us who we are, why we are here, and what will become of us.

The stories come from everywhere--from family, church, school, and the culture at large.

Sayings about And The Stories: We're looking for stories that speak to us. We're looking for stories that connect us with something true. But, instead, a lot of the time we get strippers.

Saying about And The Stories: The language of the culture also reflects the stories of the culture. One word or simple phrasal labels often describe the story adequately enough in what we have termed culturally common stories.

And The Stories Quote: All the stories of the Bible that I know came to me first from my grandfather's lips. He would see stories in everything. He told stories very easily and very generously, so I loved him for that. He was a simple man, a Victorian; he was born in 1890-something.

And I, like his other grandchildren and the children in his parish, sheltered underneath it.

And The Stories Saying: I believe that if a child has a feel for writing and wants to write, there is an audience. Children should just dive in and go at it.
