I love Quotes.I love them because they make me think.What does the quoter mean? Why did he/she write this? Is there a message to get through to the reader/the world? What did YOU initially think when you read it?
Here goes blog quote #8....
"If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest."
There are many things you can invest in. There is gold, stocks, real estate, annuities, jewelry, art, antiques to name a few. Hard to say what's the best investment. To each his own. Ben Franklin is saying that by far the best investment you can make is... in yourself. Education. Reading. Self knowledge.
Unargueably, no matter whats going on with world currencies and other ecomonic functions, an investment in your mind can't be taken away and will never depreciate or be lost.
Personally, I am an avid reader. How about you? Do you invest in yourself? Reading, seminars and workshops, night classes, further education? Whatever it is, its sure to pay good, quality consistent dividends.
Thats my view..... WHAT SAY YOU?
