LITERATURE & CULTURE

Literature, like a frigate in Emily Dickinson’s words, sits on the horizon of our lives to take us lands away. It is the perpetuum mobile that turns the cogs of our existence: it inspires, enables, and transforms you into the person you will dare to become. It opens the future like a golden key. It allows you to experience other lives, other cultures, and other worlds, and grow with this knowledge. Fear not its magnetic allure: allow yourself to take the step along the literary journey, and remember: “We are all failures – at least the best of us are.” – J.M. Barrie

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” – Robert F. Kennedy

Subcategories: Poetry, Drama, Novels, Short Stories.
