Ignorance Quotes


Some people say the difference between stupidity and ignorance is that you can fix stupid. Martin Luther King, Jr. even alluded to this fact when he remarked in one of his most famous ignorance quotes, “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” Through ignorance quotes, we can readily see that ignorance can indeed be overcome and that it is often a state of misunderstanding or misinterpretation rather than the inability to understand or learn. Ignorance may be bliss to some, but those who are mired in ignorance should know that there is indeed a way out from under it. Reference.com Definition of Ignorance
