The key to knowledge is a vigilant and disciplined mind. I believe that to understand something is to experience it. Apparently, knowledge has to be learned.
In college you begin to learn information that you weren't in touch with before. Once you begin to acquire this new knowledge you discover things about yourself you didn't know you possessed. Things you thought were out of your reach or something you were not able to accomplish. Attaining new information will enable you to see things in a different light, change your point of view on things. In order to own knowledge one must address it outside of college because there's no point in learning if you can't apply it to anything unless you experience it firsthand. Not comprehending what you learned will do you no good.
College will open doors to more opportunities and choices for me in my future. Although going to college takes a lot of preparation, it will improve the quality of my life in the long run. College will allow me to gain more knowledge that will be helpful throughout my whole life. As well as expanding my knowledge there's the concept of expressing my thoughts clearly in writing and speech. Broadening my perspective by meeting new and interesting people, experiencing new social situations, and learning to be independent will increase my understanding of the world.
Without knowledge history reiterates due to ignorance of the past. Knowledge is not just one entity, "You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life." Knowledge only has power if you release it.
