For once a story is told, it cannot be called back. So you have to be careful with the stories you tell. And you have to watch out for the stories you are told. (p. 9) Why do you have to be careful with the stories you tell? Because stories come with responsibility to tell them accurately so the foundation of the moral remains intact. This is why, even though stories are passed down from generation to generation in a culture, their essence remains unchanged. Anyone who has ever read a bedtime story to a child knows the allure of a good story; it entertains, it informs and it teaches (Estes, 1995), and some stories remain with us for a very long time.
