“Knowledge is Power.” – Doc Meek


A single hour a day, steadily given to the

study of some interesting subject, brings

unexpected accumulations of knowledge.

William Ellery Channing – 1780-1842, Preacher


Knowledge is Power

I’m a lifelong learner and Irish storyteller that is fond of saying, “Knowledge is Power.”

“Not if you don’t apply it,” says his practical businesswoman wife, Jeannette Meek.

“Pour your purse into your head.” – Benjamin Franklin

Tuesday, September 14, 2010. I am grateful for knowledge. “Knowledge is power,” I have been wont to say. My wife Jeannette likes to add, “Not if you don’t apply it.” Well said, Jeannette!

And as Benjamin Franklin said: “Your best investment is to pour your purse into your head, and no one can take it away from you.”

My sister Anita says that knowledge increases in universities and schools: “The incoming students bring a little in, the graduates take none away, and knowledge accumulates.” 😮

Thank you, Anita!

Not all knowledge comes from books or formal schooling. There are infinite opportunities for all of us, parents, children, teachers and students to learn much that lies adjacent to, or outside of, formal learning situations.

For me, reading a lot and observing and interacting with life in the world of reality, helps me be not only a more knowledgeable person, it also helps me be a better person.

“Every day in every way, I am becoming better and better!” says my friend. 😮
