But even animals fight. So do savages. To fight is not be civilized. Moreover there are other ways of setting quarrels among men or nations. So really civilized people have been those who have brought peace and happiness to mankind. They have been prophets, saints, doctors, inventors and discoverers. They have been truly great since instead of inflicting pain and hardship upon humanity, they have healed their wounds. Instead of killing they have saved human lives. They are really civilized and deserve our admiration and respect.

As we read, we share great thoughts with great minds, we hope and grieve with great men. The scenes in which they appeared are described for us and as we turn the pages we come to know what nobleness is. Books work as agents and help us in being better than we are. Books should, therefore, be treated as friends and guides.
