Storied Nature of Human Nature

Storied Nature of Human Nature | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

...interesting to observe that the way humans tend to answer such big questions is through stories. For generations, humans gathered around hearth and fire to tell and retell stories. Much of cultural transmission was in the form of storytelling. Today, people are more likely to gather around the cool glow of the television or the computer screen, but we are no less storied creatures.

Thrive: The Story is Wrong but the Spirit is Right « Charles Eisenstein

Thrive: The Story is Wrong but the Spirit is Right « Charles Eisenstein | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

The quest to create a better world through conquering evil lies at the heart of civilization as we know it. Originating in the earliest agricultural civilizations, the concept of evil first applied to weeds, wolves, locusts, hail storms, and other natural phenomena that were, before agriculture, merely parts of an interdependent whole, and not the enemies of mankind.

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace - Albert Schweitzer

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace - Albert Schweitzer | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

 

Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace.

 

I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life. That is the beginning and the foundation of all ethics.


Competition is such a virtue, and everybody's so busy competing, they have no time for compassion.

 

I can do no other than be reverent before everything that is called life. I can do no other than to have compassion for all that is called life.

 

Albert Schweitzer

4 Exceptional Resources for Storytelling Inspiration

4 Exceptional Resources for Storytelling Inspiration | Wild Resiliency | Scoop.it

Whether you attended the 2012 South by Southwest Interactive Conference or just followed attendees on Twitter, you know content, and content marketing in particular, created a good deal of buzz. Not surprisingly, along with an increased focus on content came pleas and how-tos for better storytelling.

 

While stories vary widely across organizations—from product and brand stories to those based on customer and audience interests—the art and craft of storytelling must be honed regularly, especially in an era of consistently evolving technology. In that sense, nothing beats regular practice.

 

But not far behind is the act of consuming stories—that is, regularly reading, watching, and listening to the work of today’s best. For that, I’ve put together this list of (mostly nonfiction-based) storytelling resources content professionals should follow if you’re serious about finding and telling stories that will have an impact:
