Every story has three sides. Yours, mine and the facts.

The best leaders... almost without exception and at every level, are master users of stories and symbols.
Sometimes you can tell a large story with a tiny subject.
A good story cannot be devised; it has to be distilled.
It's precisely the disappointing stories, which have no proper ending and therefore no proper meaning, that sound true to life.
Remember son, many a good story has been ruined by over verification.
Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.
