A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Leo Buscaglia spoke for many Masters

by MOTHERIN on December 13, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Feliche Leonardo Buscaglia was a Ph.D who taught the only class at USC called Love 101. As a teenager, my best friend and I used to listen to his cassettes because he is so irresistible, and we'd laugh when he'd say things like, "Wouldn't it Wonderful?" Now my kids have found him for me on You Tube-I had never actually seen him- and I wept at seeing this man who had humbly and joyfully inspired me for so many years. He dedicated his life to living and teaching love. He has passed away, and I thought what a tragedy that anyone has to miss him. (He used to talk on PBS and talk shows when love was being discussed.) But with You Tube no one has to, and if no one misses this wonderful soul, "Wouldn't it be wonderful?"
