Learn From Them

“Many men have been just as troubled
morally and spiritually as you are right now.
Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles.
You’ll learn from them–if you want to.
Just as someday, if you have something to offer,
someone will learn something from you.
It’s a beautiful reciprocal arrangement.
And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.”

J.D. Salinger
The Catcher In The Rye
