„It’s all a question of story. We are in trouble just now because we

do not have a good story. We are in between stories. The old story,

the account of how the world came to be and how we fit into it,

is no longer effective. Yet we have not learned the new story. Our

traditional story of the universe sustained us for a long period of

time. It shaped our emotional attitudes, provided us with life pur-

poses, and energized action. It consecrated suffering and integrated

knowledge. We awoke in the morning and knew where we were.

We could answer the questions of our children. We could identify

crime, punish transgressors. Everything was taken care of because

the story was there. It did not necessarily make people good, nor

did it take away the pains and stupidities of life or make for unfail-

ing warmth in human association. It did provide a context in which

life could function in a meaningful manner.”
