Definition: Raconteur (pronounced rak-uhn-tur); French; noun
1. One who excels at story-telling
Why I love this word:
Everyone has a story. It's how you tell it that leaves an impression.
“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.”— Dead Poets Society (1989)
