"The stories we tell one another— they matter.


They describe the arc of our potential. They shelter us in difficult terrain. They grant us sincerity, and dignity, and legitimacy. They seed the collective unconscious and bridge gaps in understanding where no argument or polite conversation can. They tell us who we want to be. They save us."
