  “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing,” 

said the famous philosopher Socrates.

What does "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing" mean for us today?

If you knew nothing, what would you do first?

Ask thought-provoking questions!

Learn.

Absorb the answers.

Meditate on what's learned.

Compare it to what else was previously known about the subject.

Then ask even more thought-provoking questions. Only by asking questions does one truly learn and begin to grow wise.

I couldn't agree more and this is why I don't understand some people's defensiveness when they don't know something - don't defend something in ignorance, open your mind and ask questions!
