Ignorance

“If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”

Robert Orben

“Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation.”

Walter Cronkite

“The only victories which leave no regret are those which are gained over ignorance.”

 Napoleon Bonaparte

Ignorance is dangerous. It is a great loss. Being ignorant is a choice, a painful one that makes you lose opportunities, people you love and your life.

Making the decision to be disinterested in some aspects of life can put you in a difficult and undesirable position.

Knowledge is power. Reading every day, searching for information that you need, having an open mind, being curious about what you love, being interested in everything and asking good questions can really change your life.

Nobody wants to have an ignorant partner, parent or friend. You can’t help other people when you refuse to learn, you can’t become a better you when you don’t know yourself. The world goes on without you but you lose opportunities to grow and to make your dreams come true.

In any given moment you have the chance to choose curiosity over indifference, action over procrastionation and life over ignorance.

“It’s a fact—everyone is ignorant in some way or another. Ignorance is our deepest secret. And it is one of the scariest things out there, because those of us who are most ignorant are also the ones who often don’t know it or don’t want to admit it.
Here is a quick test: If you have never changed your mind about some fundamental tenet of your belief, if you have never questioned the basics, and if you have no wish to do so, then you are likely ignorant.
Before it is too late, go out there and find someone who, in your opinion, believes, assumes, or considers certain things very strongly and very differently from you, and just have a basic honest conversation. It will do both of you good.”

Vera Nazarian
