Keep growing

Upon knowledge, build wisdom.

Upon wisdom, build experience.

Upon experience, build your reputation.

Upon your reputation, build your dreams.

Upon your dreams, build memories.

Upon the memories you both have and leave behind, build a legacy.

               To what end is the pursuit of higher knowledge, the relentless quest for education and mental equipping that drives a person along her search for greater self-awareness?  It ought to be because everything one knows becomes the basis for her life, its purpose and experiences.  Knowledge for knowledge’s sake is empty;   learn how to use that knowledge for good, and you have begun developing wisdom, an essential life skill.  The experiences that lead to making wise choices add up to define who you are as a person, and that image is what will propel you through the life of your choosing.   It is so very trite, but bears repeating:   do not let life happen to you, rather (you) happen to life.

  1. I agree. We are fortunate to live in an era when there is easy access to abundant knowledge. Libraries have been referred to as a “poor man’s university” and these days every town has one. The internet is a treasure trove of knowledge and now accessible from the palm of our hands. We have an easier time getting knowledge and wisdom than any other in the past.
