The one short tale we feel to be true

“We crave nothing less than the perfect story; And while we chatter or listen all our lives to a din of craving–jokes, anecdotes, novels, dreams, films, plays, songs, half the words of our days–we are satisfied only by the one short tale we feel to be true; History is the will of a just God who knows us.” –Reynolds Price
