The more a person learns and understands, the more that person should be humbled by what they don’t know. This principle is dedicated to the fallibility of human knowledge and the folly of the human ego. Humbly seeking the truth is about all that can be expected. Any principle offered for inclusion as a core principle on this list will be appreciatively considered with an open mind and heart. If something isn’t missing from my list of core principles, then either no one is looking, (Extremely Probable), I have been vague enough to directly or indirectly touch on most of the important principles, (Fairly Possible), or I am a real prophet, (Highly Unlikely).
There are things known and things unknown and in between are the doors.
There is not a truth existing which I fear… or would wish unknown to the whole world.
When you know a thing, to hold that you know it, and when you do not know a thing, to allow that you do not know it – this is knowledge.
It is not when truth is dirty, but when it is shallow, that the lover of knowledge is reluctant to step into its waters.
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.
