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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

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

Six pocket philosophies you hold dear...

by ShellDeFelice on January 22, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My favorite is from Mr. Rogers: " You couldn't not love everyone, if you only knew their story." (He literally carried this in his pocket)
You do not have to attend every fight you are invited to. Everything you do and say has an impact and the potential to start an avalanche of change. Mellow red wine and quality chocolate are necessary. Children are for nurturing only and it is everyone's reponsibility to participate. Words, spoken or written can be the most powerful healing potion or the most bitter destructive poison.
