Respect for the truth comes close to being the basis for all morality.

U Thant (Source: SoberSides.com)

The law of love and compassion for all living creatures is again a doctrine to which we are all too ready to pay slip service. However, if it is to become a reality, it requires a process of education, a veritable mental renaissance. Once it has become a reality, national as well as international problems will fall into perspectives and become easier to solve. Wars and conflicts, too, will then become a thing of the past, because wars begin in the minds of men, and in those minds love and compassion would have built the defenses of peace.

Who are Authors?

Apart from the normal definition, an author is the one who can add life to the lifeless words and make them speak for themselves leaving an everlasting effect on the one who reads their masterpieces. They sometimes write an entire book reciting a story with a moral hidden in it and sometimes just a few words can do the magic. We often quote some words from their writings and they become famous under their names. People who don’t have much time to read the entire books or novels these days are really impressed and look forward to reading shorter pieces of motivational contents known as Quotations.

No matter how low or depressed you feel, you can always find content that can lift you up in the bad times and bring you back to cheerful mode. Yes, that’s the power of an author. Sometimes these authors just don’t realize how important they might become in someone’s success stories with the help of their writings. There is no limit to the categories and themes that authors can choose to write about. They keep their senses(eyes, ears, taste, smell and feel) open to everything out there, observe minute detail and then filter out the irrelevant to create a story that everyone can relate with. Authors make the best use of their creativity to write words that do wonders and language that speaks more than the semantics. They not just communicate the experiences of their own but also make a beautiful blend of their imagination with the experience of other people and put it down like a story. It seems as if a writer or an author tries to find a story in every human being. 

Who are the different types of Authors?

There exists a variety of authors out there who tend to master one or the combination of different writing styles and patterns and gain name and fame as the recognition of their expertise. The categories of the authors are novelist, critic, poet, satirist(using satires and sarcasm to make a point), lyricist, story writers, Playwright(writing plays), screenwriters, librettist(one who works on musical texts like Operas), speechwriters, editor, historian, encyclopedist, essayist, translators, bloggers, journalists, columnists, report writers, technical writers and so on. 

No matter which category an author belongs to, they are well versed with the topic and genre they choose and try to either make the people aware about it or motivate them or present their views in a way different than others.
