Hello, today I came across a quote that I am trying to comprehend.
I couldn't find any more context, which makes it harder for me, as a non-native English speaker, to understand.
There seems to be a lessson under the quote, but I couln't get any.

Some readers turn to the history for adventure and escape; others seek the lessons which they believe it will teach.

Specifically, I find those bold words really difficult to understand.
Any help, in advance, is really appreciated.

    If you "turn to history for adventure and escape", you read history books so that you can think about the adventure you find in those books. That helps you to escape your ordinary worries and concerns.
