repeating important stories forever

Sometimes I am enamored with a phrase.

…common knowledge depends on us repeating important stories forever.

The context of the phrase (a tweet) is below, but the context only shrinks the meanings of the phrase.

Allow the expansive context to be the one you let the phrase hold: stories are important to the passage of knowledge and must be told forever.

The wonderful artist Nina Paley drew this (though in yet another context) nearly a decade ago.

We are the material through which information flows.

May we be great conduits for stories. May we repeat them forever.
