KNOWLEDGE IS NOT POWER

We often are told that knowledge is power. Not really. Knowledge is information. It is potential power and it becomes power only when it is acted upon.

What is the difference between a person who cannot read and a person who can, but does not read? As Ben Franklin said, “Not a whole lot.”

Learning is a lot like eating. It is not how much you eat that matters, what matters is how much you digest. Knowledge is potential power; wisdom is real power. Education takes many forms; it is not just grades and a degree. It is; Cultivating your strength, Learning self-discipline, Listening, Eagerness to learn.

Our minds are like muscles, stretch or shrink, it all depends on how much or how little we exercise them.

If you think education is expensive, try ignorance. – Derek Bok

  1. You remind me of game of thrones, “Power is power”

    With power, we need knowledge to act right. With knowledge, we need power to act. Both are different.
