A Baker’s Dozen

I happen to believe each of us is responsible for recognizing that the the higher up the ladder of knowledge we climb the wider and more stable our base of knowledge must become; thereby, making us more stable in pursuit of our goals and dreams in life. To reinforce that thought, there are all kinds of quotes concerning the importance of the continuous acquisition of knowledge throughout each of our lives.  There’s:

    • “Knowledge is power.
    • When you know you know…you fear no man.
    • If you don’t know what you’re doing, you don’t know when to stop.
    • As long as you live, keep learning how to live.
    • The good life is inspired by love and guided by knowledge.
    • The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
    • The beginning of knowledge is the discovery of something we do not understand.
    • Virtue is an angel, but she is a blind one, and must ask Knowledge to show her the pathway that leads to her goal.
    • Science is organized knowledge.  Wisdom is organized life.
    • Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.
    • The dumbest people I know are those who know it all.
  • We have a hunger of the mind which asks for knowledge of all around us, and the more we gain, the more is our desire; the more we see, the more we are capable of seeing.”

And, number thirteen, to make our Baker’s Dozen:  “A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.”  Now, you know…do something with it!
