It’s always said that “Literature is the best way to express the power of human mind, the Knowledge of human expressions, the deviations of human nature and the epitome of Wit and humor.”
Literature is the mirror of life and society it reflects our ideas, our thoughts, our Expressions, our behaviour and our personality as well. It is like a fountain of life Which places emphasis on many topics like human tragedies to fantasies and moral Values.
It is the breakthrough from the grossness and trivialities of human subsistence, from Our mundane and monotonous day to day existence. Literature lifts us from the Lowlands and transports us to the land of magnificence, from finite to the infinite Spaces, from familiar climes to those eccentric climes where flowers do not fall and Fade, where youth and beauty do not decay, where perfection reigns- that is to say, it Transports us from the world as it is to the world as it ought to be.
Literature enables people to see through the lenses of others and sometimes even inanimate objects. It is a journey that is inscribed in pages and powered by the Imagination of the reader. It provides a gateway to teach the reader about life’s Experiences from even the saddest stories to the most joyful ones that touches their Hearts.
Life before literature was practical and predictable, but in present day, literature has Expanded into countless libraries and into the minds of many as the gateway for Comprehension and curiosity of the human mind and the world around them. Literature is of great importance and is studies upon as it provides the ability to connect The best carriers of literature are books as Barbara Tuchman rightly said, “Books are the carriers of civilisation. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, Science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are the engines of Change, windows on the world and lighthouses erected in the sea of time. They are Companions, teachers, magicians and bankers of the treasures of the mind. They are Humanity in print.”
So to discover something extraordinary about ordinary people and then to express it in ordinary words …keep reading books and dive into the world of knowledge…into the world of imagination, into the enchanting world of ideal love and exquisiteness.
