Ignorance quotes

Ignorance of all things is an evil neither terrible nor excessive, nor yet the greatest of all; but great cleverness and much learning, if they be accompanied by a bad training, are a much greater misfortune.

- Plato

Nothing is worse than active ignorance.

- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The beginning of an acquaintance whether with persons or things is to get a definite outline of our ignorance.

- Eliot, George

The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can ever end.

- Benjamin Disraeli

Of a truth, Knowledge is power, but it is a power reined by scruple, having a conscience of what must be and what may be; whereas Ignorance is a blind giant who, let him but wax unbound, would make it a sport to seize the pillars that hold up the long-wrought fabric of human good, and turn all the places of joy as dark as a buried Babylon.

- Eliot, George

There is much to be said in favor of modern journalism. By giving us the opinions of the uneducated, it keeps us in touch with the ignorance of the community. By carefully chronicling the current events of contemporary life, it shows us of what very little importance such events really are. By invariably discussing the unnecessary, it makes us understand what things are requisite for culture, and what are not.

- Wilde, Oscar

Ignorance is the first requisite of the historian -- ignorance, which simplifies and clarifies, which selects and omits, with a placid perfection unattainable by the highest art.

- Strachey, Lytton

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

- Shakespeare, William

There are two things which cannot be attacked in front: ignorance and narrow-mindedness. They can only be shaken by the simple development of the contrary qualities. They will not bear discussion.

- Wilde, Oscar

He was distinguished for ignorance; for he had only one idea, and that was wrong.

- Disraeli, Benjamin

Imaginary obstacles are insurmountable. Real ones aren't. But you can't tell the difference when you have no real information. Fear can create even more imaginary obstacles than ignorance can. That's why the smallest step away from speculation and into reality can be an amazing relief. The Reality Solution means: Do it before you're ready.

- Sher, Barbara

No matter how busy you may think you are, you must find time for reading, or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance.

- Townsend, Atwood H.

Vague and mysterious forms of speech, and abuse of language, have so long passed for mysteries of science; and hard or misapplied words with little or no meaning have, by prescription, such a right to be mistaken for deep learning and height of speculation, that it will not be easy to persuade either those who speak or those who hear them, that they are but the covers of ignorance and hindrance of true knowledge.

- Locke, John

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

- Thomas Jefferson

To surrender to ignorance and call it God has always been premature, and it remains premature today.

- Isaac Asimov

There is only one good -- knowledge; and only one evil -- ignorance.
