Ira Glass Quotation

THE STORY IS A MACHINE FOR EMPATHY.  IN CONTRAST TO LOGIC OR REASON, A STORY IS ABOUT EMOTION THAT GETS STAGED OVER A SEQUENCE OF DRAMATIC EVENTS.  SO YOU EMPATHIZE WITH THE CHARACTERS WITHOUT REALLY THINKING ABOUT IT TOO MUCH.  IT IS A REALLY POWERFUL TOOL FOR IMAGINING YOURSELF IN OTHER PEOPLE’S SITUATIONS.
