Why don’t you drink water as the book told us?
We all have a clear picture of the story about crows drinking water, but in the picture given, it shows another story. A crow surprisingly saw its fellow drinking water easily with a sucker/straw instead of filling the bottle with stones. After seeing the picture, I am totally deep in thought.
Actually, we are just like the crows. Many of us strive to drink the water with our mouths, which is painful and unsuccessful. However, there are few people thinking from a new angle and achieving twice the result with half the efforts. Our life is just like drinking water in the bottle. We all spare no efforts to achieve what we want but eventually end up in failure. So how can we break the stereotype and become accomplished?
First and foremost, never always believe in books. An old saying has it that “It’s better to walk ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books.” Admittedly, we can acquire knowledge from books. But what we should do is to apply what we have learnt to practice. In addition, we should think from a new angle so that a unique idea may strike on us. Last but not least, we should learn from others, thus adopting the experiences and skills in our own ways.
As a student, I should pay more attention to creating new ideas instead of just referring to the books. Only when I have a clear mind and be more innovative can I make greater contributions to the society in the future.
As is vividly depicted in the picture, a crow is drinking water from the bottle in its own way, while a bird nearby thinks the crow should have drunk water as the book told them. As far as I'm concerned, the picture actually reveals a thought-provoking problem.
It's self-evident that in the current exam-oriented educational system, we tend to believe everything we acquire from our text book. The knowledge we learn from the books is bound to be theory. Admittedly, theory can help us solve the problems in our test papers, it could not always be useful in our daily life. It's no exaggeration that practice sometimes carries more weight than theory. Thus, I will give priority to combine theory with practice. Besides, what our text books say is true in most cases, however, it's not always the case. From my perspective, it's crucial for us to have a critical attitude towards the books since searching for truth is an ongoing process. If we blindly believe our books, chances are that we may be deprived of the opportunity to make new findings.
In a nutshell, it's undesirable to believe everything in our books. I'm in the hope that we could cultivate critical spirit towards our books and develop our potential to the full.
As is vividly depicted in the picture, there are two crows hoping to drink the water in the bottle. One crow keeps throwing stones into the bottle, acting exactly what he learnt from the book, while the other uses a more brilliant measure and successfully gets access to the water.
Laughing at the former crow, ironically, most of us may have a hard time applying theory and experience in books to practice, only to find those so-called geniuses succeed in developing a shortcut. The key is to think and work creatively.
Indeed, there’s no denying that books are the heaven of knowledge, the ocean of wisdom where our minds swim and our souls are enriched. But depending on them too much and automatically copying theories will eventually make Jack a dull boy.On the other hand, by thinking innovatively, we cease to cling to old rules told by books. Our spirits are no longer confined and we can manage to embrace universal possibilities. Try observing and approaching something in another way like what Einstein did to classical physics and what Darwin did to the Origin of Species. Only by then our future will not be so blurry and vague.
If everyone stuck to books, no new flames of innovation would be born. Please think outside the box.
