Sometimes text fonts/polices can be expensive to buy, or you have to pay extra money for commercial uses,
A lot of people search for fonts by googling it or by searching in websites like Dafont but those fonts aren't necessarily free for all uses also they are not - in my opinion - the most original ones
Also you might like a font but can't modify it since it's not open, that's why open-source fonts are the best because you can actually modify them and fit them to your needs
Here is where you can find the best and most original open and free fonts for your projects/works etc..
