Sitting here quietly thinking, why is this important?
To be well educated; is to be richly respected.
Education is freedom from all the things of the world.
Education gives one the privilege of not being poor.
Foolishness is transformed into wisdom.
But with this education is a guarantee.
For this knowledge can not be stolen from you
Like a thief in the night
But once planted in your mind, in your soul
It’s yours until the time of the last sunrise,
When all that is known is lost
This knowledge is yours in your soul for eternity on end
Do you have this knowledge?
Think before you answer too hastily
Look and search through every alley and corner of your brain
For this knowledge isn’t derived from dictionaries or
It can’t be taught in a lecture or seminar
No one can plunge into it in a library
For it is not in any textbooks
For this knowledge is placed in one’s heart
Like a seed by the Most High
This is the education that one’s soul desires
It quenches the thirst of a wanderer in the Sahara
It is one’s warmth in the cold of Siberia
It is the comfort when you are in angst
Protection when you are defenseless as a minute old infant
It is one’s joy when they are in pain
Now, is this the knowledge you possess?
