“Our knowledge can only be finite, while our ignorance must necessarily be infinite. “ – Karl Popper
In my work I meet lots of people.
Some know a lot and talk a lot.
Some know a bit and talk a lot.
Then there are people who talk little and know a lot.
Nothing wrong with any of these. It reminds me that in other parts of my work I talk about big concepts, with little knowledge of depth and sound confidence.
Also some people might have valuable, almost perfected thoughts that rarely do get chance to vibrate as a sound in the air, even though these thoughts should.
It just reminds me that the humble knowledge is desirable, although then again we should take a risk more often and fill the void by speaking anyway, at least someone might learn something. Testing the knowledge under more knowledgeable people is surest and quickest way to learn.
“A man should never be ashamed to own that he has been in the wrong, which is but saying in other words that he is wiser today than he was yesterday.” ― Alexander Pope
