Knowledge is one thing that should mean the most to anybody. Knowledge is the tool that keeps us learning, that helps us not make further mistakes and the thing that helps us all grow as a person. In the bible it states, “Knowledge, seek and you will find, ask and you will find.” The search for knowledge should never stop. Some say knowledge is power and I would fully agree. Along with that, with power comes respect. Therefore, knowledge will lead to respect, especially in my eyes. I have the upmost respect for those that are in search to learn and attain more knowledge. Those that choose to keep a closed mind automatically miss the chance to earn my respect. But, enough about my views. Knowledge is something that deserves more recognition. I feel as though, many people do not take it as serious. Let’s give an example of what I am trying to say shall we? A person can have a great job, with benefits never heard of before, but have far less knowledge than a college drop out. Knowledge is not referring to book smart, but intelligence in every aspect of life. Knowledge can be as simple as learning how to heat up a cup of water. It isn’t necessarily rocket science, but something that is new and will be useful to a person later on. So this now brings me to my eleventh rule; It is alright to treat yourself to some knowledge. Nobody has all knowledge, but it never hurts to gain some more. So keep an open mind about things, and be aware of your surroundings, because you can learn from just about anything.
