Educated people primarily learn from observation, listening, and reading. The human mind is designed for education. The word “education” comes from the Latin word, “educare”…which means: to raise up, to rear, to bring forth: a talent or skill which is already a potential within the individual.
I want to focus on the effects of reading. It is a process by which the symbols of any given language are assembled to create words…and every WORD represents a concept or serves a purpose in the clarification of some concept or idea. Words serve a purpose to both the writer and the reader.
Obtaining the skill of reading makes it possible for the one who reads, “the reader”, to receive ideas and concepts from “the writer”. The writer is the individual who provides the ideas and concepts by way of written language.
