What the Quote: Flannery O’Connorfeatured

There is a certain embarrassment about being a storyteller in these times when stories are considered not quite as satisfying as statements and statements are not quite as satisfying as statistics; but in the long run, a people is known, not by its statements or its statistics, but by the stories it tells. -Flannery O'Connor

The real debate, I think, is whether our society still values statements and statistics over stories.
