Is Knowledge Power?
True education is training of both he head and the heart. We need to compete for knowledge and wisdom and not for grades. As it is very rightly said, that knowledge is piling up of facts, and wisdom is simplifying it. A student can have good grades and degree and still not learn much. The most important thing one can learn is to “learn to learn”. And this is applicable to all, not just to students. People confuse education with the ability to memorize facts. But educating the mind without morals creates just robots that are lead by instructions and not moral responsibilities.
People say “Knowledge is Power”, but I don’t feel so. Knowledge is just information. It is potential power and it can become power only when acted upon.
Learning is a lot like eating, it is not how much u eats matters, what matters are how much you digest.
If knowledge is potential power, then Wisdom is real power.
Education is a process; it is not just grades and a degree.
It is —
A process to cultivate your strength
Learning Self- discipline
Learning to Listen
I would like to share a few lines, written by my friend;
“A very thin line, but it surely separates
The meaning of being educated & being literate.
People confuse with the two being the same thing,
But the two differ hell n heaven as per my ruling.
Literacy only means u know how to read and write,
But education teaches u , what’s wrong and what’s right.
These days people are more attached to degrees than knowledge,
Guess! That’s the reason for their mind’s hollowness.
Be the one to know what’s best for humanity,
Running after money is just insanity.
A literate is one , who knows the meaning of everything and value of none,
Without morals n ethics , you’re education is just half- done.
So its time guys, you strive for true wisdom,
& then you’ll have the world as your kingdom.”
The tragedy of today’s world is that there are many walking encyclopedias who are living failures.
So all you people around the world, what do you think about yourself?
Are you literate or educated as well?
