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.

Depression is a sign of intelligence?

Or at least that's what I've been told twice in the last 24 hours... once by an lgbt center volunteer and the other by my current world affairs teacher...
1. "I'm yet to meet a very smart person that is genuinely happy."
2. "My smartest students always tend to be the most depressed and therefor have the lowest grades, which is weird."
