The gold fields of knowledge

     

A solid basis in fact is at the root of all truth and a true man of wisdom has spent many years of effort diligently gleaning many gold nuggets of knowledge from many fields.
With all your getting, get wisdom.
Be willing to spend days or even weeks of digging into the gold fields of knowledge to discover a precious nugget of truth.
To be able to recognize real gold when he sees it is a talent a good prospector definitely needs.
A prospector who can not recognize real gold when he sees it will no doubt return foolishly rejoicing with a bag full of worthless stones.
It is not easy to find nuggets of pure gold.
A good prospector knows he much search long and hard to find the precious nuggets of pure gold for which he seeks. Likewise, a man of true wisdom must be willing to labor as long as it takes to find the precious nuggets of pure truth that for which he seeks.
