Motivation: Quote-A-Day

Today’s quote comes from Lord Chesterfield who said, “If we do not plant knowledge when we are young, It will give us no shade when we are old.”

Lord Chesterfield points out that knowledge is a necessary retreat and shelter for us in our older years.  He suggests that if we do not plant this knowledge when we are young then when we grow old we will not have the comforts of that shelter when we grow old.
