“Read in order to live” - Gustave Flaubert
Every individual needs knowledge, wisdom, ideas and the ability to build better life; to solve both existing and arising problems of life so that he may live life comfortably and contentedly. These are such important elements that enable one to follow the path of reason and intellect while helping him to grow and develop from within. Even those who have been deprived of education seem to have had an intense desire of these.This leads one to recognize and remind the importance of learning while emphasizing on “Live and learn” so that one canenhance knowledge and eventually get wise to oneself. It is thus very necessary for every individual to keep himself well-informed and cultured by dint of learning and agreeing to take it as a lifelong learning process.This is possible- one can become cultivated if he cultivates good practices or habits. One of the best activities that brings one gratifying fruition is the habit of reading because reading is the best source of providing massive amount of useful information, as Sir Francis Bacon says, “Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.” Of these three parts of the quotation, reading is the very basic step for the acquisition of knowledge which provides required information to a reader.
Blessed is the person who has inculcated the habit of reading as he is not lonely or unhappy, but being at ease, he is in the company of scholars, authors, poets,writers, artists and professionals while reading,with pleasure, the contents to his heart content. In fact, the blessings of reading are in plenty, but the single most significant one is that the reader is bestowed upon a lifelong source of inspiration and pleasure of contentment provided that he reads the right kind of stuff that may let him tread in the right direction leading him towards the right thinking and the right application of acquired knowledge.
The society we live in is changing rapidly. The present period of time is the period of science and technology and the constant developments in the domain of technology have brought unparalleled progress in almost all the fields of human activities and the technology is universally laid and accepted and agreed with all its inclusive structure. Thus, in this dynamic world which is replete with challenges and intense competitions all around, one must strive to be competent and skilled that he may find favorable opportunities; that the capabilities may have occasion to blossom and finally the life may be merry and fulfilling.This can be attainable if an individual habitually reads the right kind of books and stuff to enhance both knowledge and wisdom.
Evidence reveals that many an author have not only inspired the individuals to change their lives for the better but also made them successful in their every walk of life. It thus may be said that those who have succeeded wouldn’t have been successful had they not read those authors. This gives rise to get into the habit of reading and persistently committed to it so that one can get satisfaction from the stuff he reads while gaining more and more knowledge and being able tomake sensible decisions and judgments on the basis of personal knowledge.
