Story Quotations

Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself. - Octavia E. Butler
Every story I create, creates me. I write to create myself.
Octavia E. Butler

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

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

The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
Rumi

There's so much grey to every story - nothing is so black and white.
