"Öthe secret of the Great Stories is they have no secrets. The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They donít deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They donít surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your loverís skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you donít. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you wonít. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesnít. And yet you want to know again."
