Quotables: Bringing Stories to Life

Thursday, August 02, 2012

The thing about a story
is that you dream it as you tell it,
hoping that others might then
dream along with you, 
and in this way
memory and imagination and language combine
to make spirits in the head.
There is the illusion of aliveness.
- From The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien


  1. I love both the quote and the picture today!

    1. Thanks! I haven't read the book, but my husband found the quote when he was reading The Things They Carried and told me I should use it for my blog. :)
