THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - KNOWLEDGE

" There are three principal means of acquiring knowledge available to us: observation of nature, reflection, and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the result of that combination. Our observation of nature must be diligent, our reflection profound, and our experiments exact. We rarely see these three means combined; and for this reason, creative geniuses are not common."

Exposure and practical application of the things we learned are sure ways of acquiring first hand knowledge.

Good morning! Too busy and couldn't find the right time to visit your webpage.

Sabi ni Ernie Baron, "knowledge is power!"

I'm at work trying to add some SRs in my lukbutan. Have a great day!

Bay Martin said...

Are you still conjugating your name ha ha ha!!!

Yes, knowledge is not only power, it is a free gift from God. Nurture it as you do your health.

Bay Martin said...

Take advantage of the opportunity. Hangga't kaya mo hige lang ang OT. But you need to supplement your health. Overworking is not good, too!

I thought I was going to have a grand sa holidays, hindi pala.

Bay Martin said...

Same here! I thought I would be able to accomplish many things during the holidays, but I was wrong. The days slipped by so quickly, and before I knew it, it was back to work!

I remember you were always saying that learning is a continuing process. It is very true at naging inspiration ko ang exhortation mo about learning.
