A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of ‘Knowledge is Power’.
This is a well-known quote by prominent essayist and Former Lord High Chancellor of Great Britain Francis Bacon. What does he mean by this?
He means to state that a person who has knowledge as a weapon in his arsenal is one who would prove to be incredibly powerful and potentially lethal and dangerous. He who is knowledgable, simply put, is undefeatable.
Kofi Annan had, in fact, said “Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.” Educating oneself and arming themselves with knowledge can thus be said to be the key to success in life.
Read books. Read the newspaper. Learn about the happenings of the world, even on a global scale. Every bit of information and data one gathers would never go waste and be useful at some point in life.
