Thirst is meant to be quenched
A thirst for knowledge .
Is a wonderful start of all learning
But is thirst simply enough to know?
Thirst for knowing must never be coerced…
To truly want to learn one needs
Focus and drive.
Passion and purpose
Patience and perseverance
Analysis and deduction
Attention and retention.
And most of all patience.
Knowledge is wonderful
But knowing is valuable…
For all knowledge does not mean knowing.
As there is always more to learn and unlearn.
Knowledge dances on the edges of true knowing.
And wisdom lies in every bit of knowing.
