ignorance

A Quote by Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton] on ignorance, mind, and wisdom

True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.

Akhnaton (c.1375 - c.1353 BC)

A Quote by Adam Nicolson on ignorance and poetry

The field is a halfway house, halfway between the detail of those intimately known places and the ignorance of a landscape view. . . . The essence of a field is that the cultural accommodates the natural there. The human being makes room for and makes use of those organisms that are not him. In that way the field is a poem to symbiosis, and a human contract with the natural.
