“Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.”
My favorite saying: “Knowledge is power” – Francis Bacon, Meditationes Sacrae (1597). When we educate ourselves, we learn new things that we were previously unaware of. This gives us the ability to make better decisions, come up with more evolved and intelligent thoughts, improve the lives of ourselves and those around us, and thus makes us more valuable people overall.
No matter what happens in your life, knowledge is something that nobody can ever take away from you. Once you learn a new and revolutionary idea that transforms the way you view the world, it is yours forever. And the more you learn, the more insights you can build on top of the things you already know, until one day, you realize that the constant pursuit of knowledge is one of the pillars of your success and happiness.
Knowledge and writing go hand-in-hand.
I came across this video today and it reminded me that without writing, civilization would not be where it is today. Writing is arguably the greatest invention in civilization; it freed the acquisition of human knowledge from the limits of the human memory and allowed us to pass it along. Knowledge became widespread, accessible and permanent, never lost and always added to.
Innovations expand exponentially as we share knowledge through the written word.
Innately curious, my own insatiable thirst to know more has fueled a lifelong passion for reading, and even writing. I truly enjoy sharing what I’m passionate about: horticulture, global arts, gardening and intuitive cooking. Knowledge elevates us and I take special joy in encouraging curiosity in children, hopefully inspiring their own zest for continuous learning.
If you are here, perhaps you are a reader or a writer. What do you like to read about? What do you like to write about? Does learning new things compel you to share your experiences in any particular way? I’d love to hear your thoughts, feel free to leave a comment.
