In this prospect; indeed, one experiences in the literature of all forms and categories that the mass of minds reads low and senseless writings; whereas, neglect and disdain the academic and visionary writing and subject. The distinction that describes and shows the natural human history, which never prevails upon pure skill and wisdom that becomes authentic, quotable, and worthy quotation for all the times.
