It has been said, “Not everything that is learned is contained in books.” Compare and contrast knowledge gained from experience with knowledge gained from books. In your opinion, which source is more important? Why?
These days, there are many possible ways to gain knowledge and a chance to apply them. And I think that action and books are our most common ways. I believe perception got from practice sticks with us more than our memory can handle the books we read. I feel this approach for two reasons, which I will elaborate on it in the following essay. First of all, our lives are full of unplanned situations and moments full of surprising events. And this direct involvement in the events stays with us for well amount of time. That is what experience is capable of doing. When we interact with scenarios that are unfamiliar to us we inevitably apply to memorize that moment. For instance, I never forget the interaction I had with my godmother last year. As it is an actual involvement with the event I made, it is now stuck in my head forever. Moreover, When we involve directly in our daily life events, we are definitely influenced by it. And if that contact affected us negatively we attend to avoid any possible choices that led us to a crisis. And if we were affected in a great course we strive harder for that moment to come again. So these kinds of interactions are what are common and what our society mostly has learned to circulate. My know-how is a compelling example of this. Last summer I had forgotten to carry my id with me on my process to a different city, which made it to be a bad road trip. From then on, I never forget to have my id with always. Finally, I think that even though books are also among the necessary requirements to help us broaden our knowledge, involvement surpasses it in a great form by attaching to our brains.
