The object of study should be to gain #wisdom, rather than knowledge.
A #knowledge of our ignorance is the first step toward true knowledge
The beginning of #wisdom is the #knowledge of one's faults.
Whoso loveth #correction loveth #knowledge; But he that hateth reproof is brutish
It is not what is read or what is remembered, but only what is #understood, that gives #power,
#Reading alone, no matter how extensive, or how retentive the memory, will not give #wisdom or #power.
Nothing is #true simply because it is in a #book. Accept it only when it passes the test of your own understanding.
Learn what the writer of the #book thinks in matters of #opinion, never accept such views blindly, believe them only when see them is true.
Master the #book, not the book master you.
A student is generally quite unable to foresee with any degree of correctness what his #work in #life will be.
If little labor, little are our gains; Man's #fortunes are according to his pains.
The only real #education is self-education.
#Education is an opportunity, nothing more. It will not guarantee #success, or #happiness, or #contentment, or #riches.
For the end of #education and training is to help nature to her perfection in the complete development of all the various powers

Think Customers - 5 Secrets to Success in Retail…
Too few small #business owners have a #marketing mind-set. You have to find out what your #customer is and who your #competition is.
Henry Ford quote: "If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses."
No. 1 Challenge: Transforming today's vast, ever-increasing volume of consumer information into actionable #marketing insights.
In today's hyper#competitive world, the race for the competitive advantage is really a race for customer and market #insights.
Go for something deeper - understand why people #want what they want.
There are three kinds of #companies: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who wonder what's happened.
