Prejudice is the child of ignorance.
A Quote by William Faulkner on children, commitment, crime, desires, ignorance, innocence, and people
When grown people speak of the innocence of children, they don't really know what they mean. Pressed, they will go a step further and say, Well, ignorance then. The child is neither. There is no crime which a boy of eleven had not envisaged long ago. His only innocence is, he may not yet be old enough to desire the fruits of it . . . his ignorance is, he does not know how to commit it.

Truth will always be truth, regardless of lack of understanding, disbelief or ignorance.
A Quote by François Marie Arouet Voltaire on ignorance, knowledge, spirit, superstition, thought, and virtue

I envy animals for two things - their ignorance of evil to come, and their ignorance of what is said about them.
Sign in London bus station! "profanity makes ignorance audible."
If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?
