Yesterday, I read the book of the Unbearable Lightness of Being written by the writer Milan Kundera from Chech completedly first time. Acturally, I don not understand the whole meaning of writer, I only have a little thoughts and feelings. Milan Kundera, I think he is a philosopher not a writer,of course, sometimes writer is philosopher, in his this book, he sets forth the boundary between light and heavy of life all the time, What exactly do we arrange the degree of light and heavy, nobody can give an general answer, because for different people, various degree will be presented. Writer considers that life should be heavy, for only when we endure the burden or pressure of life,in other words,when the life is heavy, we could have the sense of reality from life, if we makes us life is too light, of couse, you will have no pressure, your life will be in the air, it is a little unreality, you know, if a person do not want to commit himself, it is a regretted matter, because he is a craven person in the face of life. However everyone has the right to be the craven person in some circumstances, because maybe he or her is helpless when he or she desides to escape them responsibility, It is understandable. Do you have any thoughts though reading the Unbearable Lightness of Being, you can share with me.
