„There is one story and one story only
That will prove worth your telling“

—  Robert Graves, Context: There is one story and one story only That will prove worth your telling, Whether as learned bard or gifted child; To it all lines or lesser guards belong That startle with their shining Such common stories as they stray into. "To Juan at the Winter Solstice" from Poems 1938-1945 (1946).

„Any story worth telling relates to real life in some meaningful way.“

—  Jane Espenson American television writer and producer 1964
Context: Any story worth telling relates to real life in some meaningful way. Scifi allows you to tell meaningful stories without seeming too preachy — it adds a metaphorical layer between the story and the real world. Scifi is dismissed as ungrounded fluff, but it's actually the opposite.
