    Do not take your knowledge

    Hi,

    Is "Do not take your knowledge to the grave" correct?

    Re: Do not take your knowledge

    It's grammatically correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Do not take your knowledge

    It's a strange sentence. What's the context?

    Yes. It's an admonishment to share what you have learned so that the knowledge persists after your death.

    I'd still like to hear back from Untaught.

    Re: Do not take your knowledge

    We should share what we have learnt, otherwise it's useless. Some people do not share their knowledge and one day they die. It is a piece of advice for them to share it and not to take it to your grave.

    Re: Do not take your knowledge

    Did you write it yourself or did you find it somewhere? If it's the latter, please tell us where and who wrote it.

    Re: Do not take your knowledge

    You could also encourage people not to keep their knowledge to themselves.
