I read somewhere that one should go to sleep knowing more than she did when she woke up.
(I wish I could remember who said that.)
I feel so lucky to live at a time when all of the world’s knowledge is available to me.
I am not restricted by my gender.
Or location.
Or religion.
Or nationality.
It is all there for the taking. And to not take advantage of it, is to refuse all of the marvelous parts of God’s Creation. If God imbued me with intelligence, mustn’t I use it?

What did you learn today?
