I have always believed that one good story begets another. Aesop's saying speaks to this truth! When a person has a gift for story-telling, others want to listen. Even when the story-teller is exhausted, his/her audience wants more. They quickly become addicted to the dream-weaver's tales, and do not want the spell to die.

One litigant's story is good, till another is told. That's how an adversarial system of justice works... And don't ask for more, cause I read of it only ten minutes ago.

I think everybody likes to hear a good story, it is a habit since childhood. When I was a kid, I love listening to my mom telling me stories.

Seek not another sky, but if you love her, stay beneath these clouds with which her soul is blent...

It's the same with books. One book is great, till another is read!

THE FABLE


The Man and the Lion



A MAN and a Lion traveled together through the forest. They soon
began to boast of their respective superiority to each other in
strength and prowess. As they were disputing, they passed a
statue carved in stone, which represented "a Lion strangled by a
Man." The traveler pointed to it and said: "See there! How strong
we are, and how we prevail over even the king of beasts." The
Lion replied: "This statue was made by one of you men. If we
Lions knew how to erect statues, you would see the Man placed
under the paw of the Lion."


One story is good, till another is told.

It's all in the spin: A new twist, and the other story is old.
