Knowledge...some of it is free.

Some knowledge is free.

I learned much of what I know from the 'school of hard knocks.'

Now some of that knowledge was free...the rest cost me in many different ways.

Some people are what I call book worms...they thirst for written knowledge.

For me I take knowledge where ever I can get it.  I an eager to learn what I can that benefits me as much as possible.  No knowledge is bad, some is just better than others.

Remember this...


Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge...

Others just Gargle...


Which do you do?
