It's how I express myself - through storytelling and characters. They often reveal very intimate, vulnerable sides of myself. ~ Alexia Fast
Storytelling quotes by Alexia Fast
Passed down from generation to generation, storytelling was an art in my family. ~ David Mixner
Storytelling quotes by David Mixner
If you know why someone is doing what they're doing, why they're behaving the way they are, then that's your job to reveal that, and often that's situational. The storytelling does that, and then some of it's your job as an actor to make that subtext come to life. ~ Cate Blanchett
Storytelling quotes by Cate Blanchett
When I used to watch vaudevillian impressionists, people like Rich Little or Frank Gorshin, I always felt like the voice was the only point. I didn't want to do that. I wanted to be of the Robin Williams or Jonathan Winters model, where observation and storytelling was important. ~ Frank Caliendo
Storytelling quotes by Frank Caliendo
Comedians are people who embarrass themselves in style. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
I need people - theatrics and schmoozing and storytelling are part of my talent. ~ Joel Salatin
Storytelling quotes by Joel Salatin
Storytelling comes naturally to humans, but since we live in an unnatural world, we sometimes need a little help doing what we'd naturally do. ~ Dan Harmon
Storytelling quotes by Dan Harmon
I was raised, I feel like, on television, definitely a child of TV, and was always fascinated by storytelling. ~ Jim Rash
Storytelling quotes by Jim Rash
I don't assume, because I can write screenplays, that I know how to write a novel. It's a very different world. There's a craft involved in storytelling, and it's a different kind of craft. But yes, someday I will do that. It just might be awhile. ~ Melissa Rosenberg
Storytelling quotes by Melissa Rosenberg
Literature supplements the lives of people and enables us to feel connected with the world. Shared stories blunt a sense of tragic aloneness, and endow us with the tools to understand our humanness. Reading about the lives of other people acquaints us with the hardships of other people. The authorial voices of narrative prose express our shared feelings of deprivation ~ Kilroy J. Oldster
Storytelling quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
You have to think about good storytelling and characters first. Then hopefully, the rest of that stuff will follow, some more than others. But if you don't have a good film and strong characters, then you don't have anything down the road. ~ Pete Docter
Storytelling quotes by Pete Docter
Writing is like breathing for my soul. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
For girls and women, storytelling has a double and triple importance. Because the stories of our lives have been marginalized and ignored by history, and often dismissed and treated as 'gossip' within our own cultures and families, female human beings are more likely to be discouraged from telling our stories and from listening to each other with seriousness. ~ Gloria Steinem
Storytelling quotes by Gloria Steinem
The announcement that you are going to tell a good story (and the chuckle that precedes it) is always a dangerous opening. ~ Margot Asquith
Storytelling quotes by Margot Asquith
Pulitzer's Gold is a goldmine of inspiration for both journalists and non-journalists. Those in the newspaper business, who now find themselves obsessing about staff cutbacks and circulation declines, should embrace this book as a reminder of the highest ideals, and the absolute thrills, to be found in their profession. As for regular readers, Pulitzer's Gold offers marvelous storytelling, real-life adventures, and absolute proof that journalism can change our world for the better. ~ Jeffrey Zaslow
Storytelling quotes by Jeffrey Zaslow
There's a wealth of literature out there which, hopefully, will be, you know, exploded in the future, and I personally find it very rewarding to be involved with classic storytelling, and sort of legendary characters. ~ Sean Bean
Storytelling quotes by Sean Bean
Storytellers have as profound a purpose as any who are charged to guide and transform human lives. I knew it as an ancient discipline and vocation to which everyone is called. ~ Nancy Mellon
Storytelling quotes by Nancy Mellon
Stories nowadays are put in to squares, just like everything else. Stories are ever changing. They are like rivers that flow, but mankind is busy trying to dam them up and as a result, they become stagnant. They divert the water into square swimming pools, and then add chemicals to it in order to keep it sterile. ~ James Rozoff
Storytelling quotes by James Rozoff
Most of the basic material a writer works with is acquired before the age of fifteen. ~ Willa Cather
Storytelling quotes by Willa Cather
The show is not a history lesson or intellectual exploration. It is entertainment based on tension, irony and storytelling that is closely related to today's life. ~ Matthew Weiner
Storytelling quotes by Matthew Weiner
I've always believed that as an author, I do 50% of the work of storytelling, and the reader does the other 50%. There's no way I can control the story you tell yourself from my book. Your own experiences, preferences, prejudices, mood at the moment, current events in your life, needs and wants influence how you read my every word. ~ Shannon Hale
Storytelling quotes by Shannon Hale
A masterpiece does not unfurl its wings immediately. It takes time. It will fly when it is ready. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
My love of storytelling comes from oral tradition, the stories from my grandmother and conversations with [my] mother. The world is full of discussions of condensation, drifts, misunderstanding, repetition. These are the materials I work with. My debt is to these women. ~ Lucrecia Martel
Storytelling quotes by Lucrecia Martel
Many words will be written on the wind and the sand, or end up in some obscure digital vault. But the storytelling will go on until the last human being stops listening. Then we can send the great chronicle of humanity out into the endless universe. ~ Henning Mankell
Storytelling quotes by Henning Mankell
When life gives you a second chance, don't just run with it…fly. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
When I work on my own stuff - and I think this is true for anybody - but when you work on something that you just completely own, you are trying to stay as true to your own storytelling voice as you can. ~ Gene Luen Yang
Storytelling quotes by Gene Luen Yang
Part of the power of all storytelling is reassurance, offering hope to those sat in the darkness, that good can succeed and wrongdoing fail. ~ Charles Sturridge
Storytelling quotes by Charles Sturridge
We have, as human beings, a storytelling problem. We're a bit too quick to come up with explanations for things we don't really have an explanation for. ~ Malcolm Gladwell
Storytelling quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
I joke that I learned the essentials of storytelling from Hanna-Barbera, but I pretty much did. That kind of television is what enamored me as a kid, and that's what really got me hooked. You could say that's where it all began. ~ Kurt Sutter
Storytelling quotes by Kurt Sutter
Pour your heart onto the page. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
We make the revolutionary history, telling the past as we have learned it mouth-to-mouth, telling the present as we see, know, and feel it in our heats and with our words. ~ Bell Hooks
Storytelling quotes by Bell Hooks
There is an extraordinary power in storytelling that stirs the imagination and makes an indelible impression on the mind. ~ Brennan Manning
Storytelling quotes by Brennan Manning
Every story needs to be worth telling. ~ Vera Nazarian
Storytelling quotes by Vera Nazarian
Ture stories can't be told forward, only backward. We invent them from the vantage point of an ever-changing present and tell ourselves how they unfolded. ~ Siri Hustvedt
Storytelling quotes by Siri Hustvedt
It might sound crazy, but filming in a conflict zone, in Afghanistan, and being a female filmmaker was the easy part. I found people open and understanding of the importance and beauty of filmic storytelling. I never had to explain why Jake Bryant, my Director of Photography, and I were climbing up a ladder to get a high shot, or running ahead to get an arrival shot, or filming weeks after weeks, months after months, collecting so much material. The process was respected and honored. ~ Pietra Brettkelly
Storytelling quotes by Pietra Brettkelly
The storytelling in a movie is in the cut; it's in the edit. It's not an actor's job, really. Your job is such a tiny little thing, and I love the feeling of juggling or tightrope walking. ~ Kerry Bishe
Storytelling quotes by Kerry Bishe
I've had frustrated storytelling juices that have been lying dormant for a long time, and I guess the documentary was a way of me telling a story that I felt most qualified to tell. And I loved it, and I'd love to do something else someday, probably more narrative-based. But I'm in no rush. ~ Eric Bana
Storytelling quotes by Eric Bana
Human stories are practically always about one thing, really, aren't they? Death. The inevitability of death ...
... (quoting an obituary) 'There is no such thing as a natural death. Nothing that ever happens to man is natural, since his presence calls the whole world into question. All men must die, but for every man his death is an accident, and even if he knows it he would sense to it an unjustifiable violation.' Well, you may agree with the words or not, but those are the key spring of The Lord Of The Rings ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
Storytelling quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
George Banks and all he stands for will be saved. Maybe not in life, but in imagination. Because that's what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again. ~ Walt Disney Company
Storytelling quotes by Walt Disney Company
All tales, then, are at some level a journey into the woods to find the missing part of us, to retrieve it and make ourselves whole. Storytelling is as simple - and complex - as that. That's the pattern. That's how we tell stories. ~ John Yorke
Storytelling quotes by John Yorke
Every painting tells a story. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
To paint an image and to write a poem, is to reclaim the dignity and personal is an invitation for my creative contemplation of an opened is a storytelling venture on a blank page of paper and white is reclaiming my life. ~ Isabella Koldras, Reclaiming My Life.
Storytelling quotes by Isabella Koldras, Reclaiming My Life.
Well, we look for sources of inspiration in pop culture in general. It's very important for us that, when it comes to storytelling, we don't look into other video games. We'd rather look into other mediums
movies, television series and books
for sources of inspiration. ~ Sam Lake
Storytelling quotes by Sam Lake
Fly with a kind heart, a light spirit, and a resilient soul. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
Maybe I'm a little biased, but shows like 'Dexter' and 'Southland,' I'm just enthralled by that sort of storytelling, kind of clever and patient. ~ Shawn Hatosy
Storytelling quotes by Shawn Hatosy
I'm very lucky to be able to work in print and radio. I'm very lucky to be able to work at a time when finance and economics are really important. And the number of people who tell finance and economic stories in a kind of accessible storytelling way, there's much more demand than there is supply. ~ David Plotz
Storytelling quotes by David Plotz
Dr. Johnson's enticing images and language give us a fundamentally sound and memorable way of managing change." - Albert J. Simone, President ROCHESTER INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY "Spencer Johnson's unique insights and storytelling make this a rare book that can be read and understood quickly by everyone who wants to do well in these changing times." - Randy Harris, Former Vice-Chairman MERRILL LYNCH INTERNATIONAL "This book is a simple, understandable road map for us to use as we deal with our own individual circumstances around change." - Michael Morley, Senior Vice President EASTMAN KODAK "This wonderful book is an asset to any person or group that applies its lessons." - John A. Lopiano, Senior V.P. XEROX CORPORATION ~ Spencer Johnson
Storytelling quotes by Spencer Johnson
Choose your story. Choose your future. ~ Scott Perry
Storytelling quotes by Scott  Perry
The love and support from the Witches of East End fans continues to blow us away and renews our faith that storytelling matters, strong female characters matter, and messages about faith and hope matter. I love this family. I love this story. And to be part of a show that has inspired and touched so many people's hearts is a true blessing. ~ Rachel Boston
Storytelling quotes by Rachel Boston
Love that Literature. ~ S McPherson
Storytelling quotes by S McPherson
I used to do more melodic stuff, and I used to do more actual rap - like traditional hip hop vocals. I think my method of storytelling has led me to this point, at which I want to pare down my style. I think I give the lyrics more thought, and then when I try to perform the lyrics over the track I'll try it over and over again, and eventually the lyrics will sink into the track by the way I project them. ~ Galcher Lustwerk
Storytelling quotes by Galcher Lustwerk
The joke is the purest, most essential form of storytelling. Every word has to count. ~ Paul Auster
Storytelling quotes by Paul Auster
You can put the camera in places where you may not necessarily be able to put it there if I don't do the stunt. If it's character and it's storytelling, then we do it. We design the things around me. I don't do it just to do a stunt. It's storytelling for me and how I can best bring the audience into the action, bring the audience into the story. And that's how we always look at at. ~ Tom Cruise
Storytelling quotes by Tom Cruise
Is this a kissing book? ~ William Goldman
Storytelling quotes by William Goldman
Love writes without words. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
You are your own magical elixir. Waste not one drop. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
Lying in small doses makes a good storyteller great. ~ Bryan Way
Storytelling quotes by Bryan Way
Look through the eyes of your highest self. What do you see? ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
This unceasing interplay between experience and narrative is a uniquely human attribute. We are the storytellers, the ones who put life into words. ~ Christina Baldwin
Storytelling quotes by Christina Baldwin
Storytelling is a business of unique snowflakes. Every writer is different; every book is different; every reader is different. This is why it's so hard to give writing advice, because what works for me might be poison to someone else. But if I could make one absolute assertion, it would be this: If you are not enjoying your writing, you're doing it wrong. A book is not a battle, nor is it a conquest. A book is a story, and telling it should be an enjoyable exercise. So the next time you don't want to write, don't waste time beating yourself up. Instead, stop and ask yourself why. Why do you not want to do this fundamentally enjoyable thing? What's really going on? ~ Rachel Aaron
Storytelling quotes by Rachel Aaron
Magicians and Mentalist predict the future because they create it. ~ Amit Kalantri
Storytelling quotes by Amit Kalantri
Everything I do in its essence is about helplessness. That's the story I want to tell all the time. It's the story I wanted to live - somebody who appears to be, or is, weak becoming stronger. ~ Joss Whedon
Storytelling quotes by Joss Whedon
A great story can change the world. ~ Stewart Stafford
Storytelling quotes by Stewart Stafford
It's easier to make up stories
than it is to write them down. When I speak, the words come pouring out of me. The story
wakes up and walks all over the room. Sits in a chair, crosses one leg over the other, says,
Let me introduce myself. Then just starts going on and on. ~ Jacqueline Woodson
Storytelling quotes by Jacqueline Woodson
If you judge everything by how photographically real it looks, then you're missing out on a lot of what art is about and what communication is. There are ambiguities in life, and that should be reflected in art, cinema, and storytelling, I think. ~ Ben Wheatley
Storytelling quotes by Ben Wheatley
There's nothing like the gift of understanding. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
As I've gotten older and my life is a lot more stable, I've gotten more into storytelling. ~ Scott Weiland
Storytelling quotes by Scott Weiland
I have the heart of an artist and the soul of a writer. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
Ironically, [living in] communities of the like - minded is one of the greatest dangers of today s globalized world. And it s happening everywhere, among liberals and conservatives, agnostics and believers, the rich and the poor, East and West alike. We tend to form clusters based on similarity, and then we produce stereotypes about other clusters of people. In my opinion, one way of transcending these cultural ghettos is through the art of storytelling ~ Elif Shafak
Storytelling quotes by Elif Shafak
I'll tell you a secret.
Old storytellers never die.
They disappear into their own story. ~ Vera Nazarian
Storytelling quotes by Vera Nazarian
Doubt is a question mark; faith is an exclamation point. The most compelling, believable, realistic stories have included them both. ~ Criss Jami
Storytelling quotes by Criss Jami
I really do think of it in moral terms. I think that we can't kid ourselves that the storytelling impulse is innocent and does nothing but bring good to the world. ~ Lynn Coady
Storytelling quotes by Lynn Coady
When I was 9 or 10, I used to get all the lead roles because I was the tallest person. But my interest in music soon drew me to country music. I was infatuated with the sound, with the storytelling. I could relate to it. I can't really tell you why. With me, it was just instinctual. ~ Taylor Swift
Storytelling quotes by Taylor Swift
Storytelling bridges the generational gaps in ideology. ~ Elise M. Boulding
Storytelling quotes by Elise M. Boulding
Through his mastery of storytelling techniques, he has managed to separate his character, in the public mind, from his actions as president. He has, in short, mesmerized us with that steady gaze. ~ James Nathan Miller
Storytelling quotes by James Nathan Miller
That's the thing - you do a job like 'Shameless,' and suddenly that's why you can get a job like 'The Virgin Queen', not because of all the classical theatre you've done. But we can be very snippy about television. It's absolutely the most potent and powerful form of storytelling we have. ~ Anne-Marie Duff
Storytelling quotes by Anne-Marie Duff
What may be myth in one world may always be fact in some other. ~ C.S. Lewis
Storytelling quotes by C.S. Lewis
To refrain from storytelling is perhaps one of the highest forms of respect we can pay. Those people, with no stories to circle them, can die without being misunderstood. ~ Ben Marcus
Storytelling quotes by Ben Marcus
All you can do is show people ... You tell stories that are true and compelling. ~ Bruce Springsteen
Storytelling quotes by Bruce Springsteen
I think that, at the end of the day, I'm drawn to a certain level of ambiguous storytelling that requires hard thought and work in the same way that the 'New York Times' crossword puzzle does: Sometimes you just want to put it down or throw it out the window, but there's a real rewarding sense if you feel like you've cracked it. ~ Damon Lindelof
Storytelling quotes by Damon Lindelof
People are hungry for stories. It's part of our very being. Storytelling is a form of history, of immortality too. It goes from one generation to another. -Studs Terkel ~ Studs Terkel
Storytelling quotes by Studs Terkel
A writer's breakthrough is a breakdown with a smile. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
Wherever you are, wherever you go, be sure to spread the light. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
As a writer, Chris Columbus was a big influence. 'The Goonies' was the first movie I ever saw that kids speak normally and not imagined how kids would talk. Always a big fan of Chris Columbus' dialogue and storytelling. ~ Adam Green
Storytelling quotes by Adam Green
Write what speaks to your soul. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
If you're sitting in your minivan, playing your computer animated films for your children in the back seat, is it the animation that's entertaining you as you drive and listen? No, it's the storytelling. That's why we put so much importance on story. No amount of great animation will save a bad story. ~ John Lasseter
Storytelling quotes by John Lasseter
Look upon the world with wonder. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
Since the beginning of storytelling, he explained, Death has called on the unwitting. In one tale or another, it arrives quietly in town and takes a room at an inn, or lurks in an alleyway, or lingers in the marketplace, surreptitiously. Then just when the hero has a moment of respite from his daily affairs, Death pays him a visit. This is all well and good, allowed the Count. But what is rarely related is the fact that Life is every bit as devious as Death. It too can wear a hooded coat. It too can slip into town, lurk in an alley, or wait in the back of a tavern. Hadn't it paid such a visit to Mishka? Hadn't it found him hiding behind his books, lured him out of the library, and taken his hand on a secluded spot overlooking the Neva? ~ Amor Towles
Storytelling quotes by Amor Towles
LOVE is measured in GAUGE TWENTY- specifically, love pressure in the surrounding area. If it drops below four percent, though, you may have trouble-the VW might get sad, slow down, or even stop altogether. If this occurs, you have to immediately find/write a story that somehow convinces him that there is more love, caring or compassion in the area than he thinks there is. I can't tell you how many times this has been a problem for us- how many trips were interrupted because I had to head into the nearest populated town to see if we could find examples of kindness. ~ Christopher Boucher
Storytelling quotes by Christopher Boucher
Storytelling is my passion, and it rises from a love of reading. ~ Kelley Armstrong
Storytelling quotes by Kelley Armstrong
But, number one, I think traditional noir doesn't work in contemporary storytelling because we don't live in that world anymore. ~ Brian De Palma
Storytelling quotes by Brian De Palma
In the end, you have to make love to your story and see what happens. ~ A.D. Posey
Storytelling quotes by A.D. Posey
It can be very seductive to tell our story to others who will listen because, lets face it, who doesn't love to 'commiserate' (in this context, meaning to share their misery) with other likeminded people. It justifies our attachment to the drama. The interesting thing about telling our story over and over is that it becomes even more deeply ingrained in our minds each time we tell it, and the universe delights in keeping whatever we claim as our story alive. ~ Dennis Merritt Jones
Storytelling quotes by Dennis Merritt Jones
I went to a seminar early in my career on the craft of storytelling by Robert McKee. It was really life altering. There are basic principles on how to craft an engaging story and he covers them well. He's got a book out, 'Story,' that I would highly recommend to anyone interested in improve their storytelling. ~ Jane Jensen
Storytelling quotes by Jane Jensen
Kvothe continued, smiling himself "I see you laugh. Very well, for simplicity's sake, let us assume I am the center of creation. In doing this, let us pass over innumerable boring stories: the rise and fall of empires, sagas of heroism, ballads of tragic love. Let us hurry forward to the only tale of any real importance." His smile broadened. "Mine. ~ Patrick Rothfuss
Storytelling quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
I stole a ton of film language from Steven Soderbergh and 'The Limey.' It's the definition of elliptical. It was the first movie I remember that introduced me to storytelling that isn't just one scene after another, and that things can be mixed up in the way that real experiences can. ~ Shane Carruth
Storytelling quotes by Shane Carruth
In December 2011, I will be opening up my production house, Sharmeen Obaid Films, and aspire to change the way Pakistanis approach nonfiction storytelling. There are thousands of stories to be found here. ~ Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
Storytelling quotes by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy
It was all I had, all I've ever had, the only currency, the only proof that I was alive.
Memory. p 380 ~ Abraham Verghese
Storytelling quotes by Abraham Verghese
Storytelling is all about using the imagination, for me at least it is. That's why I'm bored sometimes to see movies. I'm bored to see TV. I never see TV. I see news sometimes. I'm sorry to say, I work in this business and I love working in it, but I haven't seen a movie in so many years. ~ Peter Stormare
Storytelling quotes by Peter Stormare
When we have made an experience or a chaos into a story we have transformed it, made sense of it, transmuted experience, domesticated the chaos. ~ Ben Okri
Storytelling quotes by Ben Okri
