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.

Babies are borrowed. Don't forget that.

The Universe didn't give you a human being to clutch and keep forever. You were gifted a tiny person for a very short time. If you cannot nurture and add to the jouney of this amazing soul, then at the very least, do not cause it harm.
Little people are a heady responsibility that some people seem to take for granted. The love they show up with to give, has no limits. Be thankful you were invited to their journey and be careful to send them on their way as whole as possible.
