“I found an unattributed quote that encapsulated the noted responses as, “If you give a man a fact, he will learn; if you give him a truth, he will believe; if you give him a story, it will live in his heart forever.” I found that “people of all ages love true stories… that have the power to guide and motivate. The primary purpose is to let our attention linger on those people, while caught up in those situations, still refused to comply with popular and profitable wickedness. Instead, they retained a hold on truth and goodness, thereby acting as a light in the darkness that continues to illuminate the right choices for generations to come.”
