"If you want your children to be smart, tell them stories. If you want your children to be really smart, tell them more stories. I you want your children to be brilliant, tell them even more stories."
The Storyteller’s Creed
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge,
That myth is more potent than history,
That dreams are more powerful than facts,
That hope always triumphs over experience,
That laughter is the only cure for grief,
And I believe that love is stronger than death.
