Story Quotations

It is not the voice that commands the story; it is the ear.
Italo Calvino

The story of life is quicker then the blink of an eye, the story of love is hello, goodbye.
Jimi Hendrix

Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.
Steven Spielberg

I never feel lonely if I've got a book - they're like old friends. Even if you're not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they're part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.
Emilia Fox

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