Do yourself a favour and learn all you can; then remember what you learn and you will prosper.
Wisdom brings strength, and knowledge gives power.
Invest in truth and wisdom, discipline and good sense, and don’t part with them.
Truth, wisdom, learning, and good sense—these are worth paying for, but too valuable for you to sell.
Always remember what you have learnt. Your education is your life—guard it well.
“Select only strong, healthy, and good-looking young men,” he said. “Make sure they are well versed in every branch of learning, are gifted with knowledge and good judgment, and are suited to serve in the royal palace. Train these young men in the language and literature of Babylon.” The king assigned them a daily ration of food and wine from his own kitchens. They were to be trained for three years, and then they would enter the royal service.
—young men who were healthy and handsome, intelligent and well-educated, good prospects for leadership positions in the government, perfect specimens!—and indoctrinate them in the Babylonian language and the lore of magic and fortunetelling.
God gave these four young men an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom. And God gave Daniel the special ability to interpret the meanings of visions and dreams.
When the training period ordered by the king was completed, the chief of staff brought all the young men to King Nebuchadnezzar. The king talked with them, and no one impressed him as much as Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. So they entered the royal service. Whenever the king consulted them in any matter requiring wisdom and balanced judgment, he found them ten times more capable than any of the magicians and enchanters in his entire kingdom.

Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.
But Daniel was determined not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king. He asked the chief of staff for permission not to eat these unacceptable foods.
Start with God—the first step in learning is bowing down to God; only fools thumb their noses at such wisdom and learning.
Some of these people have missed the most important thing in life—they don’t know God. May God’s mercy be upon you. Sincerely, Paul
Reverence for the Lord is an education in itself. You must be humble before you can ever receive honours.
All wisdom comes from the Lord, and so do common sense and understanding. God gives helpful advice to everyone who obeys him and protects all of those who live as they should.
Wise men and women are always learning, always listening for fresh insights.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Those who get wisdom do themselves a favor, and those who love learning will succeed.

Your commandments give me understanding; no wonder I hate every false way of life.
I understand more than all my teachers, because I meditate on your instructions.
A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash.
Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”
Stay away from fools, or you won’t learn a thing.
Fools show their stupidity by the way they live; it’s easy to see they have no sense.

It is senseless to pay to educate a fool, since he has no heart for learning.
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Therefore, God elevated him to the place of highest honor and gave him the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
