Ignorance Quotes

The greatest obstacle to being heroic is the doubt whether one may not be going to prove one's self a fool the truest heroism is, to resist the doubt and the profoundest wisdom, to know when it ought to be resisted, and when to be obeyed.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
We've arranged a civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.
Carl Sagan
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly...
Proverbs 1417a Bible
Nurture an appetite for being puzzled, for being confused, indeed for being openly stupid, and that - despite what you may think - is very difficult...We all know the cliche' that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing. It is also true that a lot of knowledge can be a dangerous thing as well...use your ignorance as well as your knowledge for creative means.
Lee C. Bollinger
Silence is the virtue of fools.
Francis Bacon

Sir Philip Sidney

Kahlil Gibran
Who is more foolish, the child afraid of the dark or the man afraid of the light
Maurice Freehill
You can always tell a real friend when you've made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
Laurence J. Peter
Every person is a fool in somebody's opinion.
Danish proverb
One has fear in front of a goat, in back of a mule, and on every side of a fool.
Edgar Watson Howe
Un sot trouve toujours un plus sot qui l'admire. (A fool always finds a greater fool to admire him.)
Nicolas Boileau
We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.
Titus Livius
The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.
Bertrand Russell
It isn't the incompetent who destroy an organization It is those who have achieved something and want to rest upon their achievements who are forever clogging things up.
Charles Sorenson
He that cannot reason is a fool. He that will not is a bigot. He that dare not is a slave.
Andrew Carnegie
