Writing Quote: Stories Are Forever

People ask me: do you think that books will exist in the next millennium? And I say: maybe the form won't, maybe we'll have other things instead of books, but stories will be with us forever because they're part of us. I think the role of the storyteller is just repeating the story so the people who hear it can find some particles of truth that will illuminate their own lives.
