Life Stories 

Life is what happens to you while you’re working for your future.
– Unknown

All stories teach us something, and promise us something, whether they’re true or invented, legend or fact.
– Stewart O’Nan

  2. Amazing quotes!

  3. But all stories are invented, including truth:truth itself is made, not found. The world is out there, but descriptions of the world are not. Only the descriptions of the world can be true or false. The world on its own cannot be true or false. To say that truth is not out there is to say that where there are no sentences there is no truth, that sentences are elements of human languages, and that human languages are human creation. See Richard Rorty: Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity.
