Understand

Seek not only to know, but also to understand. In a world that is awash in information, true understanding remains a rare and precious treasure.

The knowledge and information you collect is indeed valuable. The understanding you refine from that knowledge can be priceless.

Information tells you what has happened. Understanding enables you to know what will come as a result.

Understanding gives you a clear picture of opportunities that others cannot even glimpse. The effort you put into understanding brings great value to your life and your world.

Listen, learn, question, experience, think and understand. Do the work that turns ordinary facts into golden wisdom.

Have the courage and discipline to think for yourself. And out of the raw information will come real understanding.

— Ralph Marston
