1. Reading brings about the wealth of knowledge and wisdom.
A person could not be regarded as sophisticated if he does not read. Mankind’s source of information will never be used up to since lessons and experience are continuously recorded each day. Based on what the ancestry has longed to convey through generations, people shape their way of thinking and adjust their reaction to each situation. It is clear that if there has been no wisdom carefully shared in books, there will be unlikely for people to wisely handle the problems occurring in daily life.
2. Reading boosts confidence
Timid people stay in their own little shell since they are afraid that the limit of their understanding may result in silly talks and wrong perception. It is the lessons gained from reading that appear as the base for these people to feel more confident in what they say. When a person knows exactly what he is doing as well as comprehends the expected outcome, he will barely feel hesitate to come to a decision. The case is similar to the circumstance when a student is sitting for his examination. Lack of knowledge will put him in difficulty in answering the questions. By reading, by equipping oneself with a wide range of information, human will definitely feel more confident.
3. Reading increases contentment
"Happy is the person who finds wisdom and gains understanding, for the profit of wisdom is better than silver and her wages are better than gold. Wisdom is more precious than rubies, nothing you desire can compare with her." Proverbs 3:13-15
True enough, a person with wisdom and understanding has tendency of being optimistic and happy because they learn to see things in different perspectives. Furthermore, when being engrossed in a book, one undergoes a ladder of emotions including happiness, the happiness of the author, of the characters and of oneself.
4. Reading trains patience
Reading is said to be a demanding task. To obtain all the precious information, we should learn to be patient when reading. If we don’t, it is very likely that we will skip important parts, which leads to misunderstanding later.
5. Reading betters writing, speaking and listening
It is convinced that reading helps improve other skills. Reading provides a variety of vocabularies, collocations, idioms and proverbs in order to enrich one’s writing, better one’s speaking and improve one’s listening.
A man obtaining knowledge, wisdom, confidence, contentment, patience and good skills both in written and colloquial fields by reading should be addressed as no one but a full man.
