Quotes for Public Speakers (No. 41)

John Steinbeck (1902 - 1968) American Author

“We are lonesome animals. We spend all our life trying to be less lonesome.  One of our ancient methods is to tell a story begging the listener to say — and to feel — ‘Yes, that’s the way it is, or at least that’s the way I feel it. You’re not as alone as you thought.’”

- John Steinbeck
