Experience is the best teacher

If you warn a child not to put his hand near the fire, he or she may not listen to you. But if the child actually touches the flame out of curiosity, he or she will get burnt. By actual experience the child will learn that putting one’s hand in fire can actually cause a lot of pain and physical damage.

Most of our study is based on books. But only be actual ly making a visit to the Taj Mahal will one actually experience its grandeur. Direct knowledge gives personal experience. There are so many skills that mere theoretical knowledge cannot supply complete information. Practical knowledge gives us complete, impartial and permanent information of the thing we are studying. We learn through our mistakes more than we learn from bookish knowledge. Learning by doing is the most effective way of education.
