Seven Blunders of the Worlds

A quotation from Gandhi:

  1. Wealth without work.
  2. Pleasure without conscience.
  3. Knowledge without character.
  4. Commerce without morality.
  5. Science without humanity.
  6. Worship without sacrifice.
  7. Politics without principle.
I'm particularly interested on the 3rd point with regards to the knowledge.

What is the true purpose of acquire knowledge?
To contribute the knowledge learned back to the society, in order to enable more people to attain happiness.

However, from my personal experiences, I discovered that some learned PhDs holders or people with high level of knowledge, would sometimes uses unethical methods displaying bad characters in view of protecting one's interest, especially those with positions. In other word, it means to harm others based on the knowledge learned, make others to suffer just to ensure one's position is survived. Then, what is the purpose of acquiring knowledge when it turn out to be harmful.

Thus, knowledge without characters is definitely something that we may have to take note and transform it into knowledge with great and noble character.

The role of the educators is to help the students to discover their inner potentials and at the same time utilising their knowledge in making this world a better place to live with improved ways of living.

If one's hope to be a respectful person, first he/she must respect others and at the same time posessing noble character.
