Thoughts for Thursday: Story

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is Story. Check out my other blog for more quotes.


There is no great agony than bearing an untold story inside you.--Maya Angelou

The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.--Neil Gaiman

Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.--C.S. Lewis

You can't tell any kind of a story without having some kind of theme, something to say between the lines.--Robert Wise

Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.--Shannon L. Alder

The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.--Ursula K. Le Guin

What is your favorite quote about story? Do you have one to add?
