If four things are followed — having a great aim, acquiring knowledge, hard work, and perseverance — then anything can be achieved.

Knowledge — quotes and aphorisms
True friendship can afford true knowledge. It does not depend on darkness and ignorance.
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.
