Ignorance quotes
Ignorance
This may sound too simple, but is great in consequence. Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance, which no  man could have dreamt would have come his way."

- W. H. Murray
A great idea is usually original to more than one discoverer. Great ideas come when the world needs them. Great ideas surround the world's ignorance and press for admission.

- Phelps, Elizabeth Stuart
Ignorance, when voluntary, is criminal, and a man may be properly charged with that evil which he neglected or refused to learn how to prevent.

- Johnson
The Americans never use the word peasant, because they have no idea of the class which that term denotes; the ignorance of more remote ages, the simplicity of rural life, and the rusticity of the villager have not been preserved among them; and they are alike unacquainted with the virtues, the vices, the coarse habits, and the simple graces of an early stage of civilization.

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
Boredom is a sign of satisfied ignorance, blunted apprehension, crass sympathies, dull understanding, feeble powers of attention, and irreclaimable weakness of character.

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

- Gelman, Daniel C.
Is sloppiness in speech caused by ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care.

- William Safire
There are those who consider--and I agree with them--that the education of boys under the age of twelve years ought to be entrusted, as much as possible, to women. Let me ask--of what period of youth and manhood does it not hold true? I pity the ignorance and conceit of the man who fancies that he has nothing left to learn from cultivated women. I should have thought that the very mission of woman was to be, in the highest sense, the educator of man, from infancy to old age; that that was the work towards which all the God-given capacities of women pointed.

- Lecture on Thrift. 1869.

- Socrates
He who neglects to drink from the spring of experience is likely to die of thirst in the desert of ignorance.

- Ling Po
There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.

- Hippocrates
Ignorance is preferable to error; and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing, than he who believes what is wrong.

- Jefferson, Thomas
Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

- King Jr. Martin Luther
Ignorance is a necessary condition of human happiness, and it must be owned that in most cases we fulfill it well. We know almost nothing about ourselves; absolutely nothing about our neighbors. Ignorance constitutes our peace of mind; self- deception our felicity.

- Anatole France
