    Kind of late response to this one, lol.

    Quote:

    I like this sentence for two reasons. The first of which is because, it reminds me of Job from the Bible. As Job watches his family, home, crops, and livestock be destroyed he ask his friends questions. As the first friend answers he begins to ask more questions. With each new question and answer he learns more and understands more of why God has allowed this to happen. This brings me to the second reason of why I like this quote. My geometry teacher that I have for summer school. Is always telling us that “He/She who does the work will learn”. If your just getting answers and not having to think about how you get that answer or why its that way, you’re not learning. To truly understand and comprehend what has been said you must think about it and apply it to your life. If you don’t get it the first time you have to learn to ask more questions until you get to the point where you know and understand.

    Also in Proverbs 4:7  “The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire Wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get understanding.
