writing is magic

Ruben Carter
You know that? You've learned to read. You've learned to write...Writing is- It's magic. You feel that sometimes?
Yeah, I guess I do. Mm-hmm.
Ruben Carter
When I started writing, I discovered that I was doing more than just telling a story. See, writing is a weapon, and it's more powerful than a fist can ever be. Every time I sat down to write, I could rise above the walls of this prison. I could look out over the walls all across the state of New Jersey, and I could see Nelson Mandela in his cell writing his book. I could see Huey. I could see Dostoyevsky. I could see Victor Hugo, Emile Zola. And they would say to me, "Rube, what you doin' in there?" And I say, "Hey, I know all you guys." It's magic, Lesra.

That is the conversation between Ruben Carter and Lesra in The Hurricane Movie (Based On True Story). I recommend u to watch this movie but it is not the main point of this post. The main point is I really inspired with that dialog. Like Ruben Carter said, writing is a magic.

with writing, u can build ur faith
with writing, u can inspire other people
with writing, u can create ur own world
with writing, u can have a new hope
with writing, u can express ur life...and love
with writing, u can make the world more amazing
with writing, u can make u and people to love
with writing, u can put a brick to ur dreamwall day by day until it's become reality

see, writing is a magic...

write wisely =)


  1. I totally agree with everything that you said. I ♥ writing too ─ that's one of the main reasons why I have my blog, started in 2003 and then I accidentally deleted my old blog, but I can't stay away from writing and I'm back.Ü I love it because I get to share my thoughts with friends I meet here plus I learn so much about cultures, places, food, and practically everything because of you guys too. So THANK YOU! Never stop writing, it's a gift that should be shared. Cheers Jak!
