The Essence Of Writing

Writing forms part of the evolution of a human being as from the small age or more precisely in the first stages of primary education. Why is this so? To answer this question we should perhaps first of all ask ourselves what is the aim of education; the purpose of all education should be (is?) to teach students to think and to write well so that they can express their thoughts effectively. Students should also be taught how to read critically, thinking about what they read – because reading supported by personal observation and conversation is the key to knowledge and knowledge is the key to virtue and acquiring wisdom!

What Is Writing – Is Like ‘Growing It’

That element of writing forms part of the pillars of a successful man. At an early stage, when children are introduced to this new tool which is writing, some of them think it’s so boring. I remember my first essays at primary school. Those were my headaches, as so many of my friends. But we were still so young and immature, so what about the mature (only physically or mentally) and grown-up people? Still nowadays many adults find themselves in a deep confusion when the ‘boss’ asks them to draft or to write a report or still some become utterly perplexed when the little ‘Mr junior’ comes and say “daddy/mummy teach me how to write a good essay..“. This sad outcome is the result that those people either failed to grasp the importance and true meaning of writing or they have perhaps not been able to nourish and maintain the faculty of writing efficiently and hence effectively in the long run.

Why Should You Write – Writing Is A Catalyst To Success

Why should we write conveniently? Is it just because for the sake of education, for the sake of x, y or z? NO to a large extent! The ability to express yourself clearly is (and will be) an essential basis for success as a student, when applying for employment and still in any career. In any subject (even in any career), if two students (or 2 job applicants) are otherwise equal in ability and intelligence, the one who is the better able to convey thoughts effectively in writing will score the higher marks and earn the higher respect and due consideration.

My Famous And Loved Quote – Purpose Of Education

To end here, let me quote a very lovely, thoughtful and valuable sentence from a famous writer, Dorothy L. Sayers – in her book ‘The Lost Tools of Learning‘, she wrote: “Modern education concentrates on teaching students subjects, leaving the method of thinking, arguing and expressing one’s conclusions.. [Teachers] are doing for their pupils the work that the pupils themselves ought to do. For the sole true end of education is simply this; to teach men how to learn for themselves and whatever instruction fails to do this is effort spent in vain.”
