It's Not What We Know, But What We Do With It

"No matter how extensive a man's educational background may be, how many diplomas he holds, the principal problem he faces is applying what he has learned to getting along and getting ahead in this world. After he leaves school, no one is paid or obligated to teach him anything - certainly not, unless he has a sincere desire to improve himself. Adjustment to life as it is lived, and people as they are, is a matter of personal development. Some men keep asorbing useful knowledge all through their lives. Others are satisfied to rest on the oars and drift with the tide."
