Proverbs 14:23In all labour there is profit:
Proverbs 13:4 - The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Proverbs 13:7 - There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.

·        Education is a means to exercise your brain muscles.
A diligent Doctor can excel in Business. A diligent geologist can excel in management.
