Cross Read and Take Action

There’s a Chinese old saying, “reading ten thousand books is not as useful as traveling ten thousand miles”, which means “practical experience is more useful than theory”. If one can not transform what he/she learns from reading into action, then one could not truly understand the deeper meaning that hides between the texts. We are like travelers, who are traveling on a path made of stacks of books, using our footprints to prove what knowledge we’ve learned from books.
