I like this quote by Maya Angelou which I read earlier.

“All great artists draw from the same resource: the human heart, which tells us all that we are more alike than we are unalike.”

This speaks to me. People have things in their hearts that they’ve never told to anyone because they are afraid of being ridiculed, afraid of being rejected, or just afraid in general. We would call these things our baggage, and we usually bring it everywhere we go. We put up shields because we don’t want to show our real selves or don’t think we can show our real selves. But, books, books can break those walls down. Books show people who are overcoming their limitations, who are showing their true selves, and can help us all to open our hearts and minds to infinite possibilities. They also help us learn about any subject imaginable. Escaping into the world of a book can help us escape our baggage for a time, and I would heartily recommend it to all.

Hope everyone has a great day!
