Some More Words to Ponder

Here is an assemblage of quotes.  Enjoy.

Sixty years ago I knew everything; now I know nothing; education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.  (Will Durant)

A man's ignorance sometimes is not only useful, but beautiful -- while his knowledge, so called, is oftentimes worse than useless, besides being ugly.  Which is the best man to deal with -- he who knows nothing about a subject, and, what is extremely rare, knows that he knows nothing, or he who really knows something about it, but thinks that he knows all?   (Henry David Thoreau)

The more we live by our intellect, the less we understand the meaning of life.  (Leo Tolstoy)
