Importance Of Books / Value of Books
Books are by far the most important and the lasting product of human effort. Temples crumbled into ruin, pictures and statues decay, but books survive. Time does not destroy the great thoughts which are as fresh today as when they first passed through the author's mind. What was then thought and said still speaks to us as vividly as ever from the printed pages. Books introduce us into the best society. The only effect of time has been to throw out of currency the bad products, for nothing in literature can long survive but what is really good. Books bring us into the presence of the greatest minds that ever lived. We hear what they said and did, enjoy with them and grieve with them. In a way we move in their company and their experience becomes ours. Without books no fresh ideas are possible and without fresh ideas no cultured society is possible. No wonder that the world keeps its books with great care. Books are our friends. Books help us to increase our knowledge. By reading books we can learn many things. Books are ocean of knowledge by which we can teach others essential things.
