A legend by definition is "A story about the lives of saints and heroes or some historical events, saturated with motifs of fantasy and wonder." However, theory is not everything ... The most important thing is to skillfully draw morals and values from it and relate them to yourself and your behavior.
Although legends were created a long time ago, they can still be current and teach us many things. They shape our characters and show us the world from an early age.
It was legends that told us the history of our nation, taught us what is good and what is bad. We meet them in schools, we read, but we also know them from the stories of our grandparents. Legends have hidden morals that we know as elders and discover as younger ones. They protect children from bad influences, temptations and many threats.
Morals and values that occur in Polish legends are diverse, some teach us that it is worth being good in relation to others, because good will always come back to us, others show what may happen to us for bad behavior. In most cases, it is not strength but reason that allows us to overcome the difficulties and obstacles of everyday life. We must remember that diligence, perceptiveness and perseverance in pursuing a goal are very important. Thanks to legends, we learn that impossible things can become possible thanks to our intentions, efforts and good faith. Legends tell us life truths, the most important of which are living in harmony and harmony, but also the feelings of sadness and joy that accompany our life, as well as sensitivity and justice towards various life situations.
The morals and values they convey to us help us choose the right ways of life, overcome difficulties and make us live better.
