Seek Wisdom, Not Facts

Theodore Roosevelt:

To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.

We search and search for the answers (or rather a quick fix, easy solution) to the violence and mayhem happening in our culture and around the world today. Invariably someone cries out, “We need more education!”

education_c-s-lewisIgnore these people. We have been “educating” generations of American children to no avail. A society can not survive long, where even “The Golden Rule” can’t be discussed in a public school.

Seek wisdom. Find and keep a moral compass that is rooted in something other than the material or in the self. Once you have wisdom and morality, you’ll then know what to do with all of the useless facts.
