BEHIND A NAME IS A HISTORY - SO LEARN
This, when I found it, pushed me to thinking........
"You can know the name of a bird in all the languages of the world, but when you're finished, you'll know absolutely nothing whatever about the bird. So let's look at the bird and see what it's doing -- that's what counts. I learned very early the difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something." -- Richard Feynman
Precious knowledge more often than not pass us by simply because all we know of them are their names and are content with that. Often we fail, at least, to try learning so much more about it. What's in a name? Plenty I must say. Behind a name is a history... the who, what, when, where, why, and how of its creation. That applies to both living and non-living things. How well do we know? And, if I may add, how well do we know our God, too?
Indeed, there is a ... "..difference between knowing the name of something and knowing something."
Relish today and squeeze out all learning from it.
Learn... unlearn... relearn.
God bless you!
