Ignorance Quotes

In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.
Mark Twain
A prosperous fool is a grievous burden.
Aeschylus
Many a man is praised for his reserve and so-called shyness when he is simply too proud to risk making a fool of himself.
J. B. Priestley
The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes.
Sir Winston Leonard Spenser Churchill
Wise men profit more from fools than fools from wise men for the wise men shun the mistakes of fools, but fools do not imitate the successes of the wise.
Cato the Elder
The essence of knowledge is, having it, to apply it not having it, to confess your ignorance.
Confucius
What one fool can do, another can.
Ancient Simian Proverb
He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly...
Proverbs 1417a Bible
Be wise with speed . A fool at forty is a fool indeed.
Edward Young
Words are wise men's counters, they do but reckon with them, but they are the money of fools.
Thomas Hobbes
What I want to fix your attention on is the vast overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence -- moral, cultural, social or intellectual. And is it not pretty to notice how 'democracy' (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient dictatorships, and by the same methods The basic proposal of the new education is to be that dunces and idlers must not be made to feel inferior to intelligent and industrious pupils. That would be 'undemocratic.' Children who are fit to proceed may be artificially kept back, because the others would get a trauma by being left behind. The bright pupil thus remains democratically fettered to his own age group throughout his school career, and a boy who would be capable of tackling Aeschylus or Dante sits listening to his coeval's attempts to spell out A CAT SAT ON A MAT. We may reasonably hope for the virtual abolition of education when 'I'm as good as you' has fully had its way. All incentives to learn and all penalties for not learning will vanish. The few who might want to learn will be prevented who are they to overtop their fellows And anyway, the teachers -- or should I say nurses -- will be far too busy reassuring the dunces and patting them on the back to waste any time on real teaching. We shall no longer have to plan and toil to spread imperturbable conceit and incurable ignorance among men.
Clive Staples Lewis
Only the most foolish of mice would hide in a cat's ear, but only the wisest of cats would think to look there.
Andrew Mercer
The main difference between men and women is that men are lunatics and women are idiots.
Rebecca West
If it were not for the company of fools, a witty man would often be greatly at a loss.
La Rochefoucauld
Talking and eloquence are not the same to speak and to speak well are two things. A fool may talk, but a wise man speaks.
Ben Johnson
The incompetent with nothing to do can still make a mess of it.
Laurence J. Peter
