IS KNOWLEDGE POWER?

No.

Knowledge itself is not power but knowledge applied is power.

“If Knowledge is power then zealousness is the switch.”

Without turning the switch ‘on’ everything turns out to be so mundane and no one can push their limits and think beyond the limits would just be a theoretical concept jotted down on a piece of paper with no practicality but by just imagining if enthusiasm kicks in, revolutionary ideas will be created, leading to potential power.

Every day we hear that KNOWLEDGE is the key that distinguishes us from animals. Though animals are more powerful than us in every aspect, the presence of mind, togetherness, brotherhood and to name a few led us, humans to become the supreme power.

It is rightly said that knowledge not only lead us to power, it also helps us in getting liberated. Power is used fight the enemies and once liberated, there is nothing as enemies.

The modern form of liberation includes the same platform offered to every class, no discrimination in terms of color, class, creed, and sex as such.

Albert Einstein rightly said that:

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
