Our gifts

The Christmas season is one of the periods when you buy more things. Gifts are one of the undeniable ways to present yourself as guests in the homes of friends and relatives.
Often a gift, even if of little value, can represent a lot, even the symbol of a friendship. Among adults, it is often a formality. But how many Chinese products do we buy? Surely many. And although we don’t buy them directly from the Chinese store, the origin of most of the products, above all the technological ones, is Chinese. It’s funny to think how many of the things we use have been produced in China: it’s like thinking that every Chinese worker gives us a gift when we find a low-cost product.

Cultivate one’s own culture

How much does our culture influence our character and our life? A lot if what we learn influences us in an unconscious way, that is, so that in the moment in which we do something we are not aware of it.

Although some things enlighten us, we cannot put them into practice. Often the things we learn do not enter our minds and we “forget” them. Thus culture and our cultural baggage must be cultivated constantly, even a little a day …

Our soul is not formed in one blow. But you need constancy and patience. Modeling the character can take a long time. We often forget our aspirations for fatigue, for distractions, or for lack of tenacity. The book represents the icon of our soul, of our history but also of our memories. Sometimes it is mandatory to dust off certain pages of our luggage.
