Books and my poetry collection

Do you have any collections?

Before digital books, I bought so many books that there are still some I hadn’t read when I had to five them away. As any reader would tell you, books are sacred to readers, and re-reading some is a must. It’s a good thing I kept a few books to tide me over!

As for my poetry collection, it’s my own writing, a way for me to express how the world affects me, and on which levels I wish for change to take place. There are so many issues in society today that need to be addressed today whose consequences will continue to disintegrate values, ethics, and religious beliefs.

If you’re like me

Then books are a part of your life, reading and writing a necessity of life, and you can’t have enough of either.

I came across this caricature and couldn’t help but share it! It’s so me!

Books Serve

“Books serve to show a man that those original thoughts of his aren’t very new at all.” -Abraham Lincoln

Books Serve

Books are a great way to improve your linguistic ability, as well as widen your horizons by using your imagination. No idea in a book is really ‘new’, even Shakespeare only had 3 original concepts for plays, while the others were borrowed from previously written works or histories. This does Not mean that borrowing an idea and altering it to fit your story, theme, action, … is wrong, it just means you needed a starting point. Another example is when contests are themed, or have a word or expression that needs to be used in your work. Does that mean you’re stealing from others or using ‘it’ as a starting point? The result of these contests is that over 20 different perspectives are given by the variety of writers. Are they all plagiarizing when their content is so vastly different? ‘Turn it in’ is another way that teachers and professors assess that your work is at least 80 to 85% your actual writing and not borrowed or copied.

So, tell me what you think about using an idea as a starting point.
