Ignorance

I am the wisest man because I know I don't know. I am only singularly ignorant. The rest of the citizens are twice ignorant. They think they know, but they still don't know. - Plato.


Ignorance, the root and stem of all evil. - Plato.


I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance. – Socrates.


Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance. - Plato.


The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance. – Socrates.


The learning and knowledge that we have, is, at the most, but little compared with that of which we are ignorant. - Plato.


To fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise, without being wise: for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For anything that men can tell, death may be the greatest good that can happen to them: but they fear it as if they knew quite well that it was the greatest of evils. And what is this but that shameful ignorance of thinking that we know what we do not know? – Socrates.
