Maria Popova, Brain Pickings, talks about the importance of interpretation and context in a world where there is an abundance of information.

“A great storyteller is the kindly captain who sails her ship with tremendous wisdom and boundless courage; who points its nose in the direction of horizons and worlds chosen with unflinching idealism and integrity; who brings us somewhat closer to the answer, to our particular answer, to that grand question: Why are we here?”

She wrote this animated essay as part of 2014 Future of Storytelling.
