Quote of the Day | 0401

The only way we can understand words like God, angel, devil, ghost, is through stories, since these entities do not allow themselves to be known in other ways, or not to the likes of me. Here not only is the word invented-all words are-but the referent is invented too, and a story to suit. God is a one-word creation story.

Tim Parks, ‘Do We Need Stories’
