The world isn't just the way it is. It is how we understand it, no?

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn't that make life a story?

- Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Life of Pi - Yann Martel This book isn't for everyone, yet it's one that really resonated with me, and Pi is one of my all-time favourite storytellers ever.

What's in a story? A bit of truth, a bit of fantasy, a bit of wishful thinking, a bit of darkness, and it's up to you to figure out what to believe, what to speculate about, and ultimately, what to accept.

It's kind of funny, but I never really understood the "story to make you believe in God" thing until after watching the movie.
