Quotes About Stories Of Life

At the time I did not know that stories of life are often more like rivers than books.
— Norman Maclean —

Literature can remind us that not all life is already written down: there are still so many stories to be told.

— Colum McCann

He got to see his friends differently, not as just appendages to his life but as distinct characters inhabiting their own stories;

— Hanya Yanagihara

Stories are where you go to look for the truth of your own life.

— Frank Delaney

I don't claim to have led a saintly life. There have been a lot of one-sided love stories in my life.

— Karan Johar

If you watched a movie about a guy who wanted a Volvo and worked for years to get it, you wouldn't cry at the end when he drove off the lot, testing the windshield wipers. You wouldn't tell your friends you saw a beautiful movie or go home and put a record on to think about the story you'd seen. The truth is, you wouldn't remember that movie a week later, except you'd feel robbed and want your money back. Nobody cries at the end of a movie about a guy who wants a Volvo.
But we spend years actually living those stories, and expect our lives to be meaningful. The truth is, if what we choose to do with our lives won't make a story meaningful, it won't make a life meaningful either

— Donald Miller

When I first read Lovecraft around 1971, and even more so when I began to read about his life, I immediately knew that I wanted to write horror stories. I had read Arthur Machen before I read Lovecraft, and I didn't have that reaction at all. It was what I sensed in Lovecraft's works and what I learned about his myth as the "recluse of Providence" that made me think, "That's for me!" I already had a grim view of existence, so there was no problem there. I was and am agoraphobic, so being reclusive was a snap. The only challenge was whether or not I could actually write horror stories. So I studied fiction writing and wrote every day for years and years until I started to get my stories accepted by small press magazines. I'm not comparing myself to Lovecraft as a person or as a writer, but the rough outline of his life gave me something to aspire to. I don't know what would have become of me if I hadn't discovered Lovecraft.

— Thomas Ligotti

It is often said that there should be no death or grief in children's stories. It is not wise to dwell on the dark and sad side of these things; but they have also a bright and lovely side, and since even the youngest, dearest, and most guarded child cannot escape some knowledge of the great mystery, is it not well to teach them in simple, cheerful ways that affection sweetens sorrow, and a lovely life can make death beautiful?

— Louisa May Alcott

As Oofa got closer he began to have second thoughts. He knew that the government would condemn his actions. He knew they might take their anger out on his family, He knew that his death would be a tragedy. He realized that he didn't want to die. From The Commitment in the Kindle book 9: 9 Stories of Fiction by The Prophet of life

— The Prophet Of Life

The stories about the life and teachings of Jesus were mainly told in Greek, the original language of the gospels.

— Jay Parini

It is disgusting that 'Life & Style' and 'InTouch' magazines continue to print these false stories about my life: the status of my marriage, false reports about a miscarriage, the horrible lie that my dad is not my biological father, jealousy over my sisters' lives, etc.

— Khloe Kardashian

Let there be wicked kings and beheadings, battles and dungeons, giants and dragons, and let the villans be soundly killed at the end of the book. I think it is possible that by confining your child to the blameless stories of life in which nothing at all alarming ever happens, you would fail to banish the terrors, and would succeed in banishing all that can ennoble them or make them endurable.

— C.S. Lewis

There's stories and then there's stories. The ones with any worth change your life forever, perhaps only in a small way, but once you've heard them, they are forever a part of you. You nurture them and pass them on, and the giving only makes you feel better. The others are just words on a page.

— Charles De Lint
