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.

Seeing Dirt

   The estate of the Duke of Devonshire in England contains many priceless paintings and is open to the public. One day a group of people were moving through the spacious rooms admiring the paintings. One woman never spoke a word but would repeatedly go close to a picture and examine it very carefully. After the tour someone asked what she thought of it all.
   “It was perfect,” she said, with real enthusiasm, “I could not find a speck of dust anywhere.”
   How often we miss the beauty of life because we are so intent on looking for faults.
