... world that is entirely separate from our own. We see how the same issue is viewed by another mind and how another person, the writers, feels about similar thing in life. An example of this is self-help books who teach people how to get out of their relationship crisis or how to live with a difficult boss. Though we may have tried and found that that situation is beyond help, it is by reading another person’s view and suggestion on the same topic that we may suddenly see the issue in a whole different light. The same thing is true for fiction where people find that reading even the imaginary and fictional works raise their spirits and give them hope about life. That is the main purpose of literature and that is why it is suggested that a person be well read and this gives them the vastness of ideas and thoughts with which to judge people and life in general.

- ... Jordan said, “If I have no interest in what I’m writing, then the product will be dull and in-cohesive.

- Two realms are actively experienced throughout a person’s lifetime: the realm of reality, and the mythical realm. Not everyone’s realms are the same; one person’s mythical world could be another person’s real world. People often seek to find a mythical realm, a mythical life, in order to escape from their everyday reality. Sometimes this alters one’s version of reality in the process.
