Have you come across people who say “books are my best friends” or “give me a written proof of what you just said, only then I’ll believe you.” This is how bookish people are. They are very fond of reading. They read a lot about everything. Hence they have a lot of knowledge handy.
They love atmospheres where they have to play roles according to the rules of books. They are good at professions where reference of books is needed. These people make good lawyers, civil engineers, auditors, accountants and even if they are not any of them, they like to behave like them. Bookish knowledge is very important to them.
They can understand or accept something only when it’s printed. While having any kind of discussion, it has a reference with some printed material such as newspapers, magazines, encyclopedia etc. They won’t believe news told to them, it needs to be in a newspaper.
In reality, following exactly what is written in the books is not really possible. These people prefer following exactly written in the books which makes them impractical.
“Many good sayings are to be found in holy books, but merely reading them will not make one religious. One must practice the virtues taught in such books in order to acquire love of God.” - Ramakrishna Paramahansa
Bookish knowledge fails when virtues like love, respect, spirituality, helping others, self-confidence, being healthy, street smart are just read but not implemented; the essence of it comes out only when you practice it.
Books limit our interpretation of life. Life is much more beyond what is in books. Knowledge came first and then this knowledge was put into books.
Most importantly knowing ourselves, exploring the details within us is possible only when we learn to trust our own knowledge and understanding.
