The quest for knowledge, insight and wisdom is part and parcel of life. The more we learn, the more we realize that we do not know. A revelation of how much we don’t know will continue to motivate us towards learning. In praise of constant Learning, Henry Ford, quoted- “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” Great learning must be accompanied by willingness to listen to others. This is important and should not be glossed over. Times are changing. People are beginning to realize the importance of ideas and the power of thinking and learning. We need inspiration, not just information. We need passion, not pettiness. We need courage, not cowardice. We reach our destination with discipline and deep thinking, not with dalliance and diversion. The discipline of action, although it may give rise to mistakes sometimes, is far preferable to safe and stationary living. Discipline, KLE has discovered, has an intrinsic ability to be self-perpetuating. This discipline is the secret of holistic approach of KLE. Be a proud partner of KLE family. Lastly with quotes of William A Ward, I advise young and beautiful minds: “PLAN PURPOSEFULLY, PREPARE PRAYERFULLY, PROCEED POSITIVELY, PURSUE
