“Remember on this one thing,” said Badger. “The stories people tell have a way of taking care of them. If stories come to you, care for them. And learn to give them away where they are needed.

“Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. That is why we put these stories in each others’ memories. This is how people care for themselves.

“One day you will be good storytellers. Never forget these obligations.”
