A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.

A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.

This beautiful Arabian proverb explains the usefulness of a book. The book is compared to a garden in a pocket and the garden mentioned in this nature.

There are two important teachers in this world. One is the nature and the other is a book. Nature teaches us through experience and is considered to be the best teacher in the olden days. This is because man learnt a lot of things from nature like lighting a fire, the wheel and many more things. It also provided him with all the necessities for life.

When the times changed these experiences were written down in the form of a book. This was a step forward because man could record his thoughts and pass his observations from one generation to other. The printing press was invented by Gutenberg in 1500 A.D. and it helped in quick and cost effective printing of books on a large scale. So a lot of people who could not buy the look either because they were costly or they were rare started buying them. This free availability of books changed the society and was instrumental in spreading knowledge. So the book helped man in a very significant way and since it had the ideas of nature contained in it, it has been compared with a garden.
