Ignorance breeds antipathy. Until I got to know how computers worked, I didn't want anything to do with them. I said, 'Well, why do I need them? I write letters.' Which I still do.
Ignorance is the mother of admiration.
You have this mounting aggressive ignorance with the rabbit's foot of their particular religion. You don't really have any kind of spiritual law, just a kind of a rabid mental illness. The songs are a little slice of life.

Things can change only through strong personalities. I am not very good at supporting ignorance and mediocrity, so maybe this leads to arrogant gestures and arrogant responses. So, nobody's perfect.
I consider nothing low but ignorance, vice, and meanness, characteristics generally found where the animal propensities predominate over the higher sentiments.
William John Wills
To pine for the days before public education became a practical reality is to pine for an America held back by mass ignorance and mass illiteracy.
India saw from the beginning, and, even in her ages of reason and her age of increasing ignorance, she never lost hold of the insight, that life cannot be rightly seen in the sole light, cannot be perfectly lived in the sole power of its externalities.

The project may be the lion, but the list is your whip.
The prejudices of ignorance are more easily removed than the prejudices of interest; the first are all blindly adopted, the second willfully preferred.
Is sloppiness in speech caused by ignorance or apathy? I don't know and I don't care.
Scientists habitually moan that the public doesn't understand them. But they complain too much: public ignorance isn't peculiar to science.

A man only becomes wise when he begins to calculate the approximate depth of his ignorance.
Gian Carlo Menotti

The knowledge from an enlightened person breaks on the hard rocks of ignorance.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
John F. Kennedy
