Going through life it increases,


You cannot avoid it,

Each thing you see or do increases it.

That knowledge that you gain

Is always getting bigger,

And it is something that cannot be stolen,

As no thief, however skilful can rob you of it,

That is why knowledge is the safest

And the best treasure to acquire.

    Spot on G - and it is so important to pass that knowledge on wherever you can for the benefit of others.

      So true Michael, thank you.

      Knowledge is always a good to be in a wise man's possession.

      Seek knowledge first . That leads to understanding and that is the basis for wisdom . The A B C's of a happy life .

      Thanks Ephraim.


      Thanks ANDY ~ The Good Book says "Of the making of KNOWLEDGE there is no end and (too) much study is weariness of the flesh ! Even more precious are WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING ~ Both of which are "GIFTS of the Holy Spirit" ~ AMEN Yours BRIAN
