“Pen is mightier than sword”- anonymous
As Nelson Mandela says, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.
Yes, education is a powerful weapon that one can use for saving the world or a country or a human being. What is education? It is a complete grooming of mind, body and soul. Education is multi – dimensional entity having components discipline, will, and planning. The primary aspect of education is knowledge, dissemination of wisdom learned through ages.
Education is much more than bookish knowledge. Educated man is superior man compared to non educated counterparts. He is superior in wisdom, in his success, in leadership, ultimately in wealth and social positions. He is also superior in taste and decisions he makes in life.
To quote Chanakya “Education is a best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth”.
Education extends your boundaries from known to unknown. You don’t realize your full potential unless you are educated. Purpose of life is to be educated, to live civilized life.
It is like a torch which throws the light throughout your life. United Nations Secretary – General Ban Ki – Moon reminded us that, “We cannot afford to waste the talents of a generation.” He related this to his own experience growing up in the Republic of Korea as it recovered from war. “People today often ask about my country’s transformation from poverty to prosperity. Without hesitation, I answer that education was the key.”
Education is the foundation of peace and prosperity. To sum it up, he who opens the school door closes the prison. Always gets educated, and use it for a good use.
