...That's all we are -- just stories. We only exist by how people remember us, by the stories we make of our lives. Without the stories, we'd just fade away.

From Memory and Dream by Charles de Lint

It doesn't interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
