8 Ignorance Quotes from Literature

His ignorance was as remarkable as his knowledge. ~ A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle To be conscious that you are ignorant is a great step to knowledge. ~ Sybil by Benjamin Disraeli "A truly refined mind will seem to be ignorant of the existence of anything that is not perfectly proper, placid, and pleasant." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens Ignorance gives one a large range of probabilities. ~ Daniel Deronda by George Eliot Ignorance is the parent of fear. ~ Moby Dick by Herman Melville In the immutability of their surroundings the foreign shores, the foreign faces, the changing immensity of life, glide past, veiled not by a sense of mystery but by a slightly disdainful ignorance; for there is nothing mysterious to a seaman unless it be the sea itself, which is the mistress of his existence and as inscrutable as Destiny. ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad "I do not approve of anything that tampers with natural ignorance. Ignorance is like a delicate exotic fruit; touch it and the bloom is gone. The whole theory of modern education is radically unsound. Fortunately in England, at any rate, education produces no effect whatsoever. If it did, it would prove a serious danger to the upper classes, and probably lead to acts of violence in Grosvenor Square." ~ The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde "Man," I cried, "how ignorant art thou in thy pride of wisdom!" ~ Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
