So here’s what literature can specifically do to you – –
Perhaps many may not understand it, but when you read through the strengths and faults of a many fictional (or non fictional) characters you meet in every book you read, you realize how you become braver and bolder and perhaps a generally better protagonist in real life thereafter.
And, well yeah, it makes you more articulate too. haha. Take it from Mr. Medina.
“I’ve realized that I have studied and taught the great literature all my life, and those stories are replete with characters that let opportunities slip by… but what I teach is more than literature, it’s lessons in life. If I don’t follow the tenets of those lessons, I’m not the man I thought I was, the man I wanna be.”
So the moral lesson is? READ!
And oh, don’t let opportunities slip by. 😉
