Ignorance and Knowledge are Strange Siblings

I am now reading the book, Ideation – The birth and death of ideas by Douglas Graham, Thomas T. Bachmann

Just started and came across this quote by T.S Eliot, in the book - “All our knowledge takes us nearer to our ignorance

Hmm. The more we know, the more we realize how much more there is to know. In other words, the very process of gaining knowledge makes us more knowledgeable about how much more ignorance there is to ‘cover’. Now, this is what makes us more bearable by the rest of society. :-) It is when we become more aware of our ignorance that we are ready to listen to others, learn from them and respect them for their knowledge.

Are you ignorant of your ignorance? If so, all you to have to do is try and become more knowledgeable about your knowledge. Oops. Sorry for the cornucopia of words. I am better off when speaking less. I am a kind soul. So, here’s a picture I drew to express my thoughts rather than annoy you with many more complex and unwarranted sentences.
