"The world cares very little about what a man or woman knows; it is what a man or woman is able to do that counts." Booker T. Washington Do you agree?

Sometimes this is true, in instances of lazy people. But it certainly isnt always the case, teachers and coaches for instance cannot always perform the things that they teach... That said, it wouldnt be worth anything if they were not able to teach so maybe it really is true after all.

yes I agree too often people spout rhetoric, but do very little to make the world a better place.

Hi raydene! I do agree on that. I have met a lot of learned people and most in my family are very much educated, including me..but what really matters as I realized in life is what a man or a woman do. How much he have done for his/her life. Putting those ideas and concepts into action. That is what counts. Take care and God bless!

That really IS true!!! It's like the difference betwen knowledge and wisdom. It's one thing to know things, but wisdom is how we live, and how we use that knowledge. Thanks again for another wonderul and ispiring quote.
