As is known to all, knowledge is power, which can be acquired from lots of sources. These involve books and practical experience, and every has its own strength. The knowledge we gain from books makes us to learn about things that we have no chance to undergo in daily life.
We can study all the places around the world and learn from people we will never meet in our lifetime, only by reading about them in works. We can also foster our thought mode and learn how to see and explain the world around us in diverse ways. What’s more, we can learn from the past by reading meaningful books. Thus, we won’t repeat the errors of others and can gather valuable experience. On the other hand, hands-on experience can render us more available knowledge.
As a matter of fact, I deem that making errors is the best method to learn. In addition, if we want to get some new progress, it is essential to go into action. At last, one can put the thoughts and insights obtained through learning books into practical experience, letting an already meaningful experience more practical. However, if it is not put into use, knowledge remains theoretical and useless. That is why I’m convinced that knowledge gained from practical experience is more significant than that obtained from reading books.
