There are two cups. One of milk, one of water. Drink the milk and you get wealth beyond your dreams. Drink the water and you get knowledge.
Which do you choose?
I’d choose the milk.
‘Look Dad, a bird!’
‘Do you know which one it is?’
‘That’s a lark.’
‘There’s lots of them!’
‘Do you want to know what a group of larks is called?’
‘What does asksenchen mean?’
‘Asension means to go up higher.’
‘Dad! Look how high the bird is!’
Acquiring wealth is fun but it’s nothing compared to the pleasure of finding things out.
