Life story quotes

Inspiring quotes about stories and life

Quotations, like storytelling, can really inspire us and have a big impact on our lives.  They say so much with so few words and help you visualise the meaning.

Everybody has a story to tell.  You don’t have to be famous to tell your story.  Paraphrasing American writer Mark Twain, “…inside the dullest exterior, there is a drama, a comedy, and a tragedy”.

This page on my website features inspirational storytelling quotes by some of the world’s greatest authors, actors, musicians and more.

You are invited to send in your favourite quotes to publish on this page and to share through Life and Times Video social media.
