Knowledge is the key to success. We all wish to be successful.
“An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”Benjamin Franklin
The minimum amount of knowledge is always required for being a successful educated person. Education is what drives a man towards perfection with regard to society’s respectable standards of money, respect, glory, and position. Education takes people from darkness and superstitions. It makes people aware of their rights and duties more diligently.
