"Stories are sacred. Stories remind us of who we are. So long as we remember our stories, we will not forget our ancestors or where we come from. We will not forget ourselves."

I'm thinking that I should explain the quote of the day. I'm also thinking that if I have to explain a quote, it probably is not a universal quote, where most people can relate to the quote.

I was wondering how a human being could be a talking stick. As far as I can tell,is that-- Chakotay, "Talking Stick" quote is from Star Wars.

BTW,I see that "Star Wars" in my post is a live link. I did not put it there. From what I can tell, it's part of an ad campaign at ivillage.

That sure proves to me I don't know much about "Star Wars"! I thought it was a quote from some ancient Indian chief!

Methinks it's from Star Trek: Voyage.

I reckon it's easy to mix up the different sci fi icons.

Unless one is a sci fi junkie....

I like the quote by itself. I also thought it was a saying from a native american. Because the Talking Stick is a native american tool when they hold meetings. And the operating word here is "tool".
However, when I looked further I saw that it was a character from Star Wars. I don't know much of anything about sci fi, either.

I always thought the Talking Stick was a native american thing: whoever is holding the stick may talk, and everyone else must listen. Then the stick is passed to someone else, who may talk and everyone else must listen.

sara_the_brit_, that's exactly what I thought too. But somehow the sci fi, people changed it into a person "character". I'm trying to figure it out.

The "Talking Stick" might be a perfect solution for many conversations, don't you think? Most of them, in fact!

OK, I've looked into it, and it does seem to be from the Voyager. Not Star Wars.
