Some say that literature isn't useful after you get out of school. They say that you do not use it in any kind of career. The only career you'd find use for it are English teaching proffessions or an author. Other than that, it is not useful to any other career.

Literature helps us understand the world around us. With literature, we explore the human conditions, also analyzing their emotions and thoughts. It opens and develops our minds. We see the world through the eyes of different writers from different cultures and learn the ways to deal with things happening around us. Without literature, we lack insight and understanding of human nature. Everyone should, therefore, study literature.
