I like to watch movies that teach me something, or read books that tell me something that I don't know. From these collection of men's interpretation of human lives, sometimes come a new understanding of how things really are.
Reading, is like having a conversation with the writer, giving a voice of silence, often within lengthy essays, which are sometimes boring but sometimes enlightening.
Watching a movie, on the other hand is like a lazy reading, which nonetheless, still enjoyable. There are many great men of the past, who are already dead, and the only way for us to connect with them, is to go through their works.
The joy of reading, and writing; let men be merry!
