Jack’s Winning Words 6/29/17
“Our knowledge is a little island in a great ocean of knowledge.” (Isaac Bashevis Singer) A little boy kept dipping a pail into the sea and running back to pour it into a hole. “What are you doing?” someone asked. “I’m emptying the ocean into this hole.” He replied. Basically, that explains our quest for knowledge. Do you want to know more, as I do? The fact that the ocean is so vast doesn’t discourage me; it only intrigues me. I will not give up my pail. ;-) Jack
