In china,many people think that knowledge can change fate. But now many student don't agree with this idea.Because most of students learn lots of knowledge, their fate have not changed. I have deep feeling regarding this. I am a student in northwest normal university.In my college life,I learn very hard and acquire lots of knowledge.But I don't feel that my fate will change due to knowledge.

We should know that the saying "knowlege change fate" not mean that it could help you make more money.Money is not the all for fate, right? If you have more knoelege, you could learn higher levels of knowlege,which could full our life.And for you, you may become a techer, if you have more knowlege, you will easy to teach you students the knowlege.Happy everyday and hope you will reap from your hard working.

I believe that you can learn as much knowledge as you want, but it is how you use the knowledge to change your fate. They reason why people learn, is to change where they are at in their lives. However, sometimes, even the smart intellect people don't change there fate because they do nothing with the knowledge, they have acquired. I believe, it's all about what you do with the knowledge and not how much knowledge you have.

I think, yes, in some cases knowledge CAN change fate. I'm not a strong believer in fate to begin with. I believe more in the idea that people create their own fate through their actions, choices, etc. I like to think that a lot of our future is in our own hands. I also value education above almost everything. Educating yourself is extremely important, and I think everyone should try to absorb as much information as they can. Putting these two key beliefs together allows me to agree that knowledge can change fate. If you're educated, and you have knowledge, that knowledge can help you make wiser decisions which could change your future. I think it can be compared to two people who are searching for a sewing needle. Person one, our person without much knowledge, is looking for the needle. He may or may not find it, since it's so tiny, but he tries. Person two, is our person WITH knowledge. In this metaphore, the knowledge is represented by a pair of glasses which allow him to see better than person one. Because he has the glasses, he has an advantage in finding the needle. Sure, he still might not find it. Yeah, person one may find it without glasses, while person two can't find it with glasses. But having the glasses- the knowledge- gives him much better chances of achieving his goal.

I think your metaphar is very suitable regarding this topic. Though we may not do things successfully with knowledge, we will never do it without knowledge. Moreover it often takes a long time to see the effect from education, and in most cases, more education always shakes a better attitude toward life.

Our fate is not written in stone. With knowledge we have the power to change anything in our lives. Our fate can be anything that we want it to be. Knowlefdge is the key to what our fate will hold.

so agree with you sender!it is very true that knowledge can change our lives when you know how to use it so you won't say that you just waste your time and money when it do nothing to you.we are not just learn and wait it to change our lives but we need to practically apply and use it and it will form a shape of our fate later on.

your fate is written way before you are born. How can knowledge change it? I agre knowledge can change your future but your fate is fixed.

Do not regret the fact that you have learnt very hard and have acquired lots of knowledge my friend. If you continue to believe and work hard in these same values of hard work and acquiring lots of knowledge to change your fate positively there would be a time when this knowledge would be useful.

it does not matter whether the knowledge can change our fate or vice versa but it's the way how we use the knowledge we have to improve our life.with the power of knowledge that we have we can change our life from zero to hero.use it wisely, welcomed every knowledge you learn and don't give up to learn more as the knowledge itself is so wide~
