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.

Not what's taken, but what's left.

It's not what you take but what you leave that matters. He said that for lots of different situations. Wish he was still alive to offer some more of his advice right now. I probably wouldn't appreciate it any more than I did back then when he was offering those words of wisdom while beating me in a game of pool. Too young to realize what I would be missing.
