Ignorance is the womb of monsters.
~ Henry Ward Beecher, in Proverbs from Plymouth Pulpit, 1867
When I am asked a question
Here is the way things go:
I give a lengthy answer
Before saying, “I don’t know.”
~ Joshua Adams
Apathy and ignorance are the worst forms of bondage for man; they are the invisible walls of confinement that we carry round us when we are in their grip.
~ Rabindranath Tagore, in “A Poet’s School” in Rabindranath Tagore: Pioneer in Education, Essays and Exchanges between Rabindranath Tagore and L.k. Elmhirst (London: John Murray, 1961), p. 64
