My question is what is the importance of gaining knowledge, without any materialistic interest, and just for the sake of gaining knowledge. If a very knowledge able person has no wealth, fame, power and any other materialistic plus point, still can he say that I'm successful just and just because I have knowledge? For Example if a person Mr.A led all his life in the pursuit of knowledge, just because of his curiousity, and earn no money, fame, power, niether he conveyed all his learnings to anyone by writing or any other mean.Niether he got self satisaction, by knowing that he has become a great scholar, (because to him there are tooooo many things he don't know even then), and in this pursuit he died. Can we say that Mr.A led a successful life.
