Knowledge Is Power

“Knowledge is Power.”
-Sir Francis Bacon

All my life I have heard that knowledge is power, but is that really true? I have come to believe that the power is not in the knowledge, itself, but in what you do with that knowledge.

If you got all the education available, but never apply it- there is no power or value in it at all. Take a doctor for example, if they were to do all the required classes, clinical rotations, etc., and yet never practice medicine; they have no power. But, if they were to apply the knowledge they have and treat/heal patients – that is when they have the power!

Do you have the knowledge or the power?
