Ignorance quotes
Ignorance
How frail and ephemeral is the material substance of letters, which makes their very survival so hazardous. Print has a permanence of its own, though it may not be much worth preserving, but a letter! Conveyed by uncertain transportation, over which the sender has no control; committed to a single individual who may be careless or inappreciative; left to the mercy of future generations, of families maybe anxious to suppress the past, of the accidents of removals and house-cleanings, or of mere ignorance. How often it has been by the veriest chance that they have survived at all.

- Drew, Elizabeth
A man profits more by the sight of an idiot than by the orations of the learned.

- Proverb, Arabian
Where secrecy reigns, carelessness and ignorance delight to hide while skill loves the light.

- Gelman, Daniel C.
Superstition is the child of fear, and fear is the child of ignorance.

- Lectures on Science and Superstition. 1866.
The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.

- Benjamin Disraeli
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.

- Huxley, Aldous
Against logic there is no armor like ignorance.

- Laurence J. Peter
The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance - it is the illusion of knowledge.

- Daniel J. Boorstin

- Enrico Fermi
Innocence dwells with Wisdom, but never with Ignorance.

- William Blake
Our ignorance of history makes us libel our own times. People have always been like this.

- Gustave Flaubert
It is harder to conceal ignorance than to acquire knowledge.

- Glasgow, Arnold H.
Ignorance of God's prophetic outline, failure to know God's program for the Church, the nations, and Israel, is the cause of the overwhelming amount of error and misunderstanding of the events of the future.

- Dehaan, M. R.
Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know -- and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know -- even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction -- than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too.

- Asimov, Isaac
Unintelligent people always look for a scapegoat.

- Bevin, Ernest
A woman might claim to retain some of the child's faculties, although very limited and defused, simply because she has not been encouraged to learn methods of thought and develop a disciplined mind. As long as education remains largely induction ignorance will retain these advantages over learning and it is time that women impudently put them to work.

- Greer, Germaine
We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.

- Livy, Titus
Into blinding darkness enter those who worship ignorance and those who delight in knowledge enter into still greater darkness, as it were.

- Isa Upanishad
Theories that diseases are caused by mental states and can be cured by will power, are always an index of how much is not understood about the physical terrain of a disease.

- Susan Sontag
Whenever you argue with another wiser than yourself in order that others may admire your wisdom, they will discover your ignorance.

- Saadi
