Ignorance

Everybody is ignorant -- only on different subjects.

Will Rogers (1879-1935) American humorist and actor.

A child-like man is not a man whose development has been arrested; on the contrary, he is a man who has given himself a chance of continuing to develop long after most adults have muffled themselves in the cocoon of middle-aged habit and convention.

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) British author.

Most ignorance is evincible ignorance. We don't know because we don't want to know.

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) British author.

There is one principle that can keep a man in everlasting ignorance. That is contempt prior to investigation.

Herbert Spencer (1820-1903) English philosopher, biologist and sociologist.

The greatest pride, or the greatest despondency, is the greatest ignorance of one's self.

Benedict de Spinoza (1632-1677) Dutch Jewish philosopher.

Better to be ignorant of a matter than half know it.

Publilius Syrus (1st Centry BC-?) Roman writer and poet.

I would rather have my ignorance than another man's knowledge, because I have so much of it.
