A Quote by Guy Consolmagno on science, religion, knowledge, and ignorance

Religion needs science to keep it away from superstition and keep it close to reality, to protect it from creationism, which at the end of the day is a kind of paganism - it's turning God into a nature god. And science needs religion in order to have a conscience, to know that, just because something is possible, it may not be a good thing to do.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on dao, tao, way, tao teh ching, lao tzu, sickness, health, ignorance, and knowledge

To realize that our knowledge is ignorance, This is a noble insight. To regard our ignorance as knowledge, This is mental sickness. Only when we are sick of the sickness Shall we cease to be sick.

A Quote by PiALOGUE on teacher, student, teaching, learning, learn, lesson, pitfalls, strengths, ego, transcend, ignorance, and barriers

I am at the same time both teacher and student mostly teaching myself or at least learning how to learn which may be the most important lesson of all in which case I may be my own best teacher because if I pay close enough attention to myself then I can see my own pitfalls as well as my strengths as long as I ALSO notice the times when my ego is involved and I then transcend my own ignorance and barriers to learning.

A Quote by Scott Raymond Adams on ignorance and knowledge

One of the great things about being ignorant is that I often think my ideas are original. It’s a wonderful feeling. That’s why I try to avoid any knowledge that would spoil the sensation. Sometimes it isn’t easy. People keep hurling knowledge at me, and I can’t always duck.

Scott Raymond Adams (1957 -)
