You Are What You Read

If you are a man of learning, read something classic, a history of the human struggle and don't settle for mediocre verse.



'You are what you read'
It is true indeed.

As a child absorbing things from his surrounding so does a person unconsciously being someone that he reads or sees.
Reading is an active process, one that involving mind and soul, the basic entities of human being.
We read something that is attracted to us, otherwise we simply gonna skip the pages.
The attractiveness itselves is a glimpse of reflection of our state at that moment.

We can simply put it this way,
A guy who spends time reading a Playboy Magazines could have a problem in his sexual phase of life. Thats why he tries to find that out by exploring that Buggs Bunny Mags.
A woman who spends a few dollar purchasing some Hot Celebrity Gossip Magazines, not to mention the time she spent in front of Entertainment News - just to find out whether Demi Moore survives a marriage with Ashton Kutcher or an update news from Brangelina, well ladies..don't get me wrong, but you have serious issue with dealing with your very own life.
Mingling yourself in a somebody else's life by hunting their latest story is just one of the symptoms of how dissatisfying your life is.

But then again, it's a very nature way how most people dealing with his/her own life.
I'm not in a position to judge here. Only try to see it from a different point of view.
We can't pretend to be somebody else. When we still love to read gossip news instead of biography, history or religion books. Dont push yourself too hard swallowing things that your stomach can't handle, otherwise you'll ended up throwing it all out.

In the end, let us stay in one page that there are far more important things to read than all those mediocre readings. Cause life is too short to spend on watching somebody else's life.
Let's just be more attentive to our own life...
