How true and inexhaustible is the happiness of pure knowing.However,very little human life is spent in acquiring knowledge which gives us happiness. The thirst for knowledge cannot be quenched easily. You cannot threaten a knowledge seeker with the fear of the difficulties that lie in the way.

I feel we are gaining knowledge from some source or another every moment of our lives. We gain from talking to others, surfing the net, visiting the library, personal experiences, walking out and being at one with nature, etc. etc. There is always something new to learn, and you will never, ever quench your thirst for knowledge. Brightest Blessings.

Yes,learning new things, acquiring awareness on unknown things - all these we get from seeking facts and gathering information from a variety of sources. The search perhaps, never ends.

No, I'm sure it doesn't... the more you know, the more you want to know.

The purest knowledge seeker is undeterred by their pursuit. You are so right in that. I think that threatening a knowledge seeker with fear of difficulties only strengthens his/her resolve to find that knowledge even more so! At least that is how I feel.

You are quite right. None can distract you from learning new things or gaining knowledge.

You are right and such knowledge seekers are still here on this earth! aaand yes not any kind of hurdles can stop them to get the knowledge! But they just try to get knowledge for the enlightenment, not for happyness.

Gaining knowledge brings in mental peace and harmony too. Though you would not try to instill the kind of knowledge you gain into fellow-minds, it will not cease to provide you the happiness to your heart.

that is very true, you cannot stop a knowledge seeker from seeking knowledge even when this knowledge will actually be something he or she would rather not hear.

Who would hinder you from seeking knowledge? The wealth of knowledge is of prime importance than all material gains.

The happiness of seeking pure knowledge is great and on gaining pure knowledge, happiness then becomes the pure one. When this pure knowledge is put to action by us and many like us, then it brings the real freedom of all associated with this acitvity. We know, "Knowledge is power and ideas rule the world." So more pure is the knowledge, more real is the ideas, then freedom and welfare rule every where in the entire world! This world exists only by the application of pure knowledge and real ideas upto now. So in my opinion, no happiness is comparable with the happiness of seeking as well as achieving pure knowledge. Thanks.

I love acquiring knowledge. Be it from the most trivial to the most profound. I honestly think that we learn something new every day even if we are not aware of it. Our brains are like sponges and they are constantly absorbing from when we awake in the morning until we go to bed at night. Even during the night I have been told that one can learn by subliminal methods.
