Hey guys! Interesting quotes to share out there. This week is more about the core of this blog: stories! How we get them, how we react to them. So here’s a recap:

Stories are not like the real world; they aren't held back by what we know is false or true. What's important is how a story makes you feel inside.

Stories allows us empathize, especially when the narrative is compelling. They are not part of the real world but it exhibits mimicry from recognizable themes and symbols. These make an impression to those that listen to these stories.

Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens well.

One can wonder how a person and inanimate words communicate. Reading is a peculiar medium and it consists of two parts, the words and the reader. The written word has allowed us to document stories overtime. It allow us a level of standard, but as the words remain static, the reader doesn’t. As time progresses and culture changes, people read literature with many interpretations. A good book listens well to this change, as literature that remains relevant does.

It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.

Something insightful from A Clockwork Orange, a very dark piece of fiction. I like to think that this reflects more than meets the eye when you read the book. But for the sake of the quote for quote’s sake, this is more related to the first quote I shared. Things happen, and we never see the significance of it until it shows on a screen, and under the spotlight. Very apt for a book that earned its own film adaptation quite shortly from its publication.

That was this week’s share of quotes, hope you enjoyed them. More is to come out on a topic that has always intrigued me. Look out on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for this week’s quotes!
