Quote #7

Brave Orchid saw that all variety had gone from her sister. She was indeed mad. "The difference between mad people and sane people," Brave Orchid explained to the children, "is that sane people have variety when they talk-story. Mad people have only one story that they talk over and over" (4.363).

Brave Orchid believes that variety and even inconsistency are necessary attributes in a good storyteller. The ability to change and create new stories makes one better able to live in reality.
