"Knowledge is the simple search for truth. Knowledge is your key to life, understanding, kindness, fun, happiness, wealth and success. It is also the only thing no one can take away from you that cannot be replaced as it was before it was taken! They can take away your car, your home and all your personal belongings, but they cannot take away your knowledge. If you have the knowledge, you can replace anything you lose or have taken from you. If you have the knowledge, you may be able to replace what you lose or have taken from you, or maybe even prevent it from happening all together. Lack of knowledge can be dangerous for you and possibly for the people around you. Knowledge is self-perpetuating, if you open your mind and are willing to learn. The more you learn, the more you will want to know as you find out how little you really do know." - James O. Crittenden III
