“We note that stories and storytellers are often represented as important, or that important people care for them; that repeated narration is said to bring glory; that travels through time and space make good stories – and that storytelling is a form of timetravel and spacetravel; that truth is valuable but that in certain circumstances a lie may be commendable. Narrating is depicted as an activity having sometimes a decisive influence; it may redress a wrong, or put the listeners in touch with another level of reality.”

Pg 31, The Irish Storyteller, Georges Denis Zimmermann

"Australian Aborigines say that the big stories—the stories worth telling and retelling, the ones in which you may find the meaning of your life—are forever stalking the right teller, sniffing and tracking like predators hunting their prey in the bush." —Robert Moss, Dreamgates

"I will tell you something about stories, (he said) They aren’t just entertainment. Don’t be fooled. They are all we have, you see, All we have to fight off illness and death" —Leslie Marmon Silk

"The story was the bushman’s most sacred possession. These people knew what we do not; that without a story you have not got a nation, or culture, or civilization. Without a story of your own, you haven’t got a life of your own." —Laurens Van der Post
