never stop

"Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do."
Johann Von Goethe

My dad always told me the day I stop learning is the day I stop growing. He said that it doesn't matter how old I get, or what I end up doing - it's imperative to keep learning.
"My experience has shown me that the people who are exceptionally good in business aren't so because of what they know but because of their insatiable need to know more." - Michael Gerber
It's so true. there is this inherent sense and desire for constant knowledge. It's so easy to become complacent, content with what you know. and as a 21 year old i think i know everything, right? Especially now, I'm a college graduate, with a decent degree and it would be very easy (or has become easy) for me to be home, and learning nothing. It would become very easy for me to never grow and to be content with exactly where I am. But even in this down time, it is obvious how important it is for me to continue my quest for knowledge. Because the second I stop learning... is the second I stop growing.

Started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
to fight and never walk away

"As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible but more mysterious." -Albert Schweitzer
