Books – a written or printed work consisting of pages glued or sewn together along one side and bound in covers.
Books can be so small and simply yet have all the life lesson wrapped into one. That’s what they are after all, life lessons. Each book contains a story an adventure one chosen one to a family. We share an understanding with each character and learn that villains have more to them then just being a bad guy, they are all but misunderstood just like us. Every one of us is misunderstood and only one people throughout your whole life will be the one to understand. But from what I do know about a good book is that we can’t always rely on someone to be there to catch us when we fall only we can pick ourselves back up and try again. From such a flimsy book you learn not to give up, how to be a hero at the right moment and know how to make a hard decision.
With each word our eyes catch onto is only the beginning to what we are yet to discover about our self and what our future is yet to tell us. With a book it’s never simple sometimes there are no happy endings, sometimes we lose the main character only to realise how real it is and how close to home it is. We lose characters in the book in the story that we only know so little about yet are heartbroken to know how young they were or how brave. We learn of a pain so breathtaking we are always left asking why?
We learn that a chosen one is never alone and how even the badness of the bad guy really had a heart of gold from the beginning. We become to understand that love is brutal and brittle yet has the survival instinct of a warrior. We are really all of these things and that’s where we get the idea’s from, their our life stories and only those who pick up such a book can then learn to observe and then learn how to live.
Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” – John Green (The Fault In Our Stars)
