The system brings us to the mass, and when our desires are fulfilled we feel the need to satisfy them daily. I have never loved Facebook, but everyone would realize that in Europe there are now more people who do not have this social network than people who have it. Pawel kuczysnki’s designs are as always brilliant. And the meaning is undoubtedly that we often confuse real bread with other futile things, which deceive us daily. The system of society and the mass deceives us about our needs, making us mistake the priorities and choices .. This world must always be seen from above and trying to see what remains above us.
How much does our culture influence our character and our life? A lot if what we learn influences us in an unconscious way, that is, so that in the moment in which we do something we are not aware of it.
Although some things enlighten us, we cannot put them into practice. Often the things we learn do not enter our minds and we “forget” them. Thus culture and our cultural baggage must be cultivated constantly, even a little a day …
Our soul is not formed in one blow. But you need constancy and patience. Modeling the character can take a long time. We often forget our aspirations for fatigue, for distractions, or for lack of tenacity. The book represents the icon of our soul, of our history but also of our memories.

How many books do we read? Quantity is probably important but not everything. Quality is often fundamental, and choosing your book to suit your tastes and attitudes is the best way to create a small library of culture.

If your intent is to have fun and not be too focused on the logic of the book, take a leisure book, I am convinced that the quality of the reading is usually more important than the content.
The length of the book is relative. If the book is very exciting we would like the book to never end. Instead some people prefer to read more books but short ones.
A book that has captured us represents a piece of our soul to be kept both in the library of books and in the library of one’s mind.
