LITERATURE!

Literature is .......

An art of expression that teaches a lesson  based on experience.

Something that brings knowledge to those that abuse it.

Used to express ones  most deepest thoughts and feelings.

Analytical  and easily judged.

Stylish because of it's rhythmic flow.

An unifying thing that can bring people together.

An addiction that  cannot be shaken.
