We are what we read!

"To read is to fly it is to soar to a point of vantage which gives a view over wide terrains of history, human variety, ideas, shared experience and the fruits of many inquiries.” A.C. Grayling.

 

Why do we do somethings like others? I know I certainly am that all people have something in common.

We are loving, eating, sleeping, walking, but real and the most important ability are thinking and speaking.

 

How to learning speaking like very literate people, writers, artists of the spoken genre, famous speaker?

 

Literate people read fiction.


One day, if we choose to speak well and write competently as the upper class, as the nobility, being articulate and well-spoken, then we ought decided to start reading famous writers, classics of literature and rewrite in a copybook what we read.

Reading not only has great power for development of language ability, its importance to our life really can not be overstated.

 

Let is to talk about what reading does and what it is good for.

This process is, however, not only for people whose professions includes the ability to speak correctly, but also ordinary people like we are all: you and me.


"If you are going to get anywhere in life, you have to read a lot of books.” Roald Dahl.

 

What changes will we see?

What transformations will we experience?

What benefits will we derive?

 

Reading books fill to the overall intelligence of a person by hidden treasures, invaluable knowledge, new ideas; we get access to in-depth knowledge, and we learn new words and improve our vocabulary and we have a lot of benefits; we get opportunity master the art of quickly learning complicated things.

 

The books improve our ability to empathize: to understand others feelings and views improves, it help we understand other people and we feel understood. We have ability seeing things from other people perspective.

 

"And the second thing fiction does is to build empathy. When you watch TV or see a film, you are looking at things happening to other people. Prose fiction is something you build up from 26 letters and a handful of punctuation marks, and you, and you alone, using your imagination, create a world and people it and look out through other eyes. You get to feel things, visit places and worlds you would never otherwise know. You learn that everyone else out there is a me, as well. You’re being someone else, and when you return to your own world, you’re going to be slightly changed.” Neil Gaiman.

 

It makes sharpen our perception and thinking skills and make us smarter, preventing our mind from sinking into apathy.

 

Writing style, cadence, and composition seep into our writing and saying, it influence by each other: we and books. They change together with us also.

 

The books opens up new dimensions of thoughts. Books give us imagine things beyond possibility, it that would not have come to our minds normally.

 

We become a part of the book.

 

The reading stimulates a complex network of circuits and signals in our brain, these networks become stronger and more sophisticated, the our brain connectivity increased, demonstrating the enormous benefits.

All new information from books creates new memories and which every new memory creates new synapses or strengthens old ones in out brain.

 

"Reading brains” becames (gets) smarter and sharper, it more finely-tuned.

 

We getting all these benefits while enjoying some fantastic and marvelous entertainment just reading books.

 

"So it is with children who learn to read fluently and well they begin to take flight into whole new worlds as effortlessly as young birds take to the sky.” William James.

 

Books are incredible magic. They are the way talking with the past time and ages.

There are fairy tales are older than most countries, the cultures. The written word has a unique ability to hold and keep stories, thoughts, knowledge, experience and feelings.

 

"It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.” S.I. Hayakawa.

 

We are only limited by what we can imagine, and books expand our understanding of what is possible.

Our brain itself creates scenery of what we are reading: from the smallest details to the bright colors of the soul, everything is soaked into our mind.

 

"Books break the shackles of time - proof that humans can work magic.” Carl Sagan.

 

"I was in China in 2007, at the first party-approved science fiction and fantasy convention in Chinese history. And at one point I took a top official aside and asked him "Why? SF had been disapproved of for a long time. What had changed?”

It’s simple, he told me. The Chinese were brilliant at making things if other people brought them the plans. But they did not innovate and they did not invent. They did not imagine. So they sent a delegation to the US, to Apple, to Microsoft, to Google, and they asked the people there who were inventing the future about themselves. And they found that all of them had read science fiction when they were boys or girls.

Fiction can show you a different world. It can take you somewhere you have never been. Once you have visited other worlds, like those who ate fairy fruit, you can never be entirely content with the world that you grew up in. Discontent is a good thing: discontented people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different.” Neil Gaiman.

 

We must to use the language. We have an obligation to make our tongue beautiful.

 

"The simplest way to make sure that we raise literate children is to teach them to read, and to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And that means, at its simplest, finding books that they enjoy, giving them access to those books, and letting them read them.” Neil Gaiman.

 

"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents.” Emilie Buchwald.

 

Our children are less literate than we were. They can been easily lied to and misled.

 

"I was once in New York, and I listened to a talk about the building of private prisons - a huge growth industry in America. The prison industry needs to plan its future growth - how many cells are they going to need? How many prisoners are there going to be, 15 years from now? And they found they could predict it very easily, using a pretty simple algorithm, based on asking what percentage of 10 and 11-year-olds couldn’t read. And certainly couldn’t read for pleasure.” Neil Gaiman.

 

We must to read aloud to our children.

 

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.” Albert Einstein.

  

The benefits for reading are enhances our imagination, increases our vocabulary and levels of peace and it gives us hope.

 

"Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.” Kofi Annan.

 

That is why, if we need to know what kind of person, for example, our friends, colleagues, bosses, neighbors are, ask them what books they reads? Because we are what we read!

 

"There are scientifically based reasons why you ought read books. But I prefer to read books in order to live." Constalder.

Недавно обнаружил в толстенной книге знакомые буквы и прочитал.( Первое послание к Коринфянам 15:51-52 )
"Говорю вам тайну: не все мы умрем, но все изменимся вдруг, во мгновение ока..." Возник вопрос, как и какими станем, траснмутантами, геномодифицированными химерами или зомби?

Konstantin!
What’s one book you finished recently? I’ve hadn’t read much for the last couple of weeks and then last week I happened to finish reading two amazing books— Artemis by Andy Weir & The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas . The Hate U Give especially just blew me away and I know for sure that’ll it stay with me forever— it’s such an important story.
