KNOWLEDGE IS ONLY POTENTIAL POWER

Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

“Knowledge will not attract money, unless it is organized and intelligently directed, through practical plans of action, to the definite end of accumulation of money.  Lack of understanding of this fact has been the source of confusion to millions of people who falsely believe that “knowledge is power.”

It is nothing of the sort! Knowledge is only potential power.  It becomes power only when and if it is organized into definite plans of action and directed to a definite end.  The “missing link” in all systems of education may be found in the failure of educational institutions to teach their students how to organize and use knowledge after they acquire it.

Many people make the mistake of assuming that because Henry Ford had but little “schooling” he was not a man of “education.”  Those who make this mistake do not understand the real meaning of the word “educate.”  That word is derived from the Latin work “educo,” meaning to educe, to draw out, to develop from within.  An educated man is not, necessarily, one who has an abundance of general or specialized knowledge.  An educated man is one who has so developed the faculties of his mind that he may acquire anything he wants, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.
