Ignorance quotes

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

- Gustave Flaubert

There is no darkness, but ignorance.

- Shakespeare, William

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence -- and then success is sure.

- Robert Quillen

Learning. The kind of ignorance distinguishing the studious.

- Bierce, Ambrose

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

There is a kind of laughter that sickens the soul. Laughter when it is out of control: when it screams and stamps its feet, and sets the bells jangling in the next town. Laughter in all its ignorance and cruelty. Laughter with the seed of Satan in it. It tramples upon shrines; the belly-roarer. It roars, it yells, it is delirious: and yet it is as cold as ice. It has no humor. It is naked noise and naked malice.

- Peake, Mervyn

It is an infantile superstition of the human spirit that virginity would be thought a virtue and not the barrier that separates ignorance from knowledge

Nothing is more terrible than to see ignorance in action.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

Admiration is the daughter of ignorance.

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

It is better to confess ignorance than provide it.

- Homer Hickam

Let no man write my epitaph; for as no man who knows my motives dare now vindicate them, let not prejudice or ignorance asperse them. Let them rest in obscurity and peace! Let my memory be left in oblivion, my tomb remain uninscribed, until other times and other men can do justice to my character.

- Emmet, Robert

Ignorance of one's misfortunes is clear gain.

- Euripides
