A Quote by Marquise Magdeleine de Sablé on blindness, boldness, ignorance, people, timidity, and uncertainty

Even the best-natured people, if uninstructed, are always blind and uncertain. We must take pains to instruct ourselves so that ignorance makes us neither too timid nor too bold.

Magdeleine Sable (c. 1599 - 1678)
