Over the years, millions and millions of writers continue to emerge and the majority of them credit their source of inspiration to great writers who contributed a lot to both written and spoken word.
Through these writers, we have been able to understand more of our past and appreciate where we are coming from as writers. Today, cannot make sense without the past. And for that reason, it would be in vain to dream about tomorrow, if we understand not of our today.
