A book is a place where you can obtain refuge. Every prejudice is erased and your mind starts a new life, a new story. It is not necessary to know anything, just by reading you can learn it all. Opening the first page of a book is like turning the knob of a door which stands between you and the rest of the universe. Wisdom, fantasy, history and life lessons are waiting for you between the pages, to make you smarter, happier and purer.
When I first read “The little prince” I was 8 years old and it changed my entire world. I learned how to describe my feelings, how to see the world from the perspective of older people, and how to dream about a surreal life. Some books made me grow up and guided me in various situations as a kid and even nowadays. Reading is always like looking deep in your heart and spreading the wings you didn’t know you had. Opening a book is opening your mind, both to have a better understand of the surrounding world and your own soul.
As Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote “The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart”. Just open a book and start to discover the world.
