In Others’ Words: Building Ourselves Out of Stories

“We all become what we pretend to be….  It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head.  Always.  All the time.  That story makes you what you are.  We build ourselves out of that story.”  (Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind ch.92)
