There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge
That is curiosity.
There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others
That is vanity.
There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve
That is love.
—St. Bernard of Clairvaux
One of my favorite quotes! Spoken over 800 years ago, and still true today. St. Bernard, who's feast day it is, knew the importance of using the gifts that God gave us. Not to boost our ego's but to help all the people of God. Education is still the most powerful tool and we even today we need to be reminded to use it for the service of others.
