By wisdom is a house built, by understanding it is established, through knowledge it’s rooms are filled with precious goods. Proverbs 23:3-5.
1. The triad of the pains of poverty, illiteracy, and the feelings of inadequacy created the push to develop content through the acquisition of knowledge in my case.

You cannot dramatise greatness throughout your life. The pressure of the reality of life will collapse your emptiness sooner than later.

God bless you.
