First allow me to ask what do you mean by "late father" coz I have never heard of that phrase before. And I think this topic is out of question, wealth is just part of you, but you are part of the education, I mean, education can give you much that can not be replaced by money.

Definitely!!! With an education, you have the ability to think for yourself and to take care of yourself. How many wealthy people do you know of that haven't got a lick of common sense?? Just look at the tabloids! I firmly believe that children should work for what they get in life, and an education helps with that.

Hello dear marketing friend. You are absolutely right on this issue that education is better than wealth. What is the purpose of receiving good education? It is out of the purpose of having a brighter and more perspective future of our life. With good education received, we will be able to create wealth bit by bit through our great effort and wisdom. A better-educated person can always have better ideas on what to do or what kind of business to do and also on how to do it in a more effective way to make the profit out of the business to the maximum. The relationship between education and wealth is closely related. Nowadays there are many businessmen without good education, but if they have got better education, their business is sure to be booming than ever...Thanks for your good discussion, dear friend.

Your father is correct. My parents, although a little bit hard for them on those times for us 6 children to send to school, had also made sure that all of us finished our college degrees. Education is a kind of wealth that can not be taken from us, unlike material wealth. So, as a parent, this is what I want to give to my sons too, a good education by sending them to a good school and to make sure that they finish their college degree.

I agree to your father's wisdom. Even in my family, my parents used to give that piece of advise. And it is true, people can not get it or steal it from you.

I think that is the best belief that you could really worth keeping. You should try to keep it and try top imposed to your children so that they would also pass this on to their children in the near future. Anyone who knows the value of education in their lives will most likely to succeed in the endeavor they will choose in the near future.

Education is the key to all successes. Having wealth without education or knowledge is only temporal wealth. If we have education, we will be able to succeed in any ventures.
