While in Kindergarden (I call it Basic School) I learned this Poem:
"Labour for learning before you grow old,
For learning is better than silver and gold.
Silver and gold will vanish away,
But a good education will never decay."
I was about 3 or 4 years old at the time. I never forgot it.
I learnt another poem "The Heights By Great Men" when I was in Primary School. It goes:
"The heights by great men reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight.
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling onward through the night."
