Nothing Surpasses Not knowing (IM 904)

“It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows.”

― Epictetus

It might sound weird but not knowing is a great skills and nothing surpasses it. It is the inception of everything.

Milan Kundera in his book The Unbearable Lightness of Being said:

“The stupidity of people comes from having the answer for everything. The wisdom of the novel comes from having a question for everything.”

It’s is really important to ask question. One who ask questions on everything is the one who is destined to be evolving.

It is true that nobody knows all. Tragically, must of us don’t even know ourselves. Marcus Aurelius wrote: “Learn to ask all sets of actions, why are they doing that? Starting with your own.”
