Published at : 18 Dec 2020

The value in learning about symbols is that it teaches you to see beyond the surface of a thing, of a person, of a real-life situation or event, and see the abstract relationships at work there. If you can find meaning in a book’s symbols, then you can find meaning in your own life and your own world.
