No knowledge is a waste but I am of the opinion to convert every knowledge you acquire to the positive side. One of my mentor said, if you don’t have a library you will be a liability. Many people are no where to be found because they refuse to read books after their school of education. They remain monotonous instead of dynamic. Can’t you observe that bank is always healthy and fresh with air-condition. When bank look haggard and unequipped, people will be afraid to go and save their money there to avoid losing their money., so it is when you lack information. You won’t attract people much.

I once read a story that goes this way,. At a nursing home in Florida a resident group was discussing ailments. “My arms are so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee,” said one. “Yes I know, my cataracts are so bad I can’t even see my coffee,” replied another. “I can’t turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck,” said a third. At which several others nodded weakly. “My blood pressure pills make me dizzy,” another one went on. “I guess that’s the price we pay for getting old,” winced an old man. “It sure beats the alternative. Well, it’s not that bad,” said one woman cheerfully. “Thank goodness we can all still drive!”
