It's the first time I saw this quote and for me, I think, the meaning of this, is that...

Knowledge is greater than any wealth in this world and ignorance is worse than poverty.

And I think nowadays, most people are lack of common sense. For me, common sense is as great as knowledge. We say that you've got brain, okay? But you don't have common sense, I think it's just useless.

I observe that most of the leaders in this world are IGNORING his people's need. And the result is: POVERTY. Example is: Republic of the Philippines. That's it.

This is just my OPINION.

Thank you po Mam Hull.
