If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.

Whatever you do, don’t get into a rut. Following the lines of least resistance is a tendency which everybody has to fight against. It is so easy to let things slide, to go on as we been going, Our mental grooves of laziness in thought and actions wear deeper.
Our reason why we tend to travel in ruts is that we like to go along with the crowd and be popular with it. We dress alike, we eat alike, and we behave alike. The average person has no shield against ridicule. We do almost everything by the same pattern just because we are afraid of being conspicuous. Many man and woman have original ideas, but they are timid about expressing them. They know they run the risk of being commented on, if not actually jeered at. Only a few have sufficient strength of character to be themselves and let the world go hang, and it is those few who become the leaders of thought, and push civilization along.
-Louis E. Bisch
