Weakness is what brings ignorance, cheapness, racism, homophobia, desperation, cruelty, brutality, all these things that will keep a society chained to the ground, one foot nailed to the floor.
The real power of the Buddha was that he had so much love. He saw people trapped in their notions of small separate self, feeling guilty or proud of that self, and he offered revolutionary teachings that resounded like a lion's roar, like a great rising tide, helping people to wake up and break free from the prison of ignorance.
It is not ignorance but knowledge which is the mother of wonder.
Joseph Wood Krutch
They say a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, but it's not one half so bad as a lot of ignorance.
You can rule ignorance; you can manipulate the illiterate; you can do whatever you want when a people are uneducated, so that goes in line with corrupt business and corrupt politics.
The only good is knowledge, and the only evil is ignorance.
Acquaint yourself with your own ignorance.
Cruelty is all out of ignorance. If you knew what was in store for you, you wouldn't hurt anybody, because whatever you do comes back much more forceful than you send it out.
Ah! destructive Ignorance, what shall be done to chase thee out of the World!
If I don't have wisdom, I can teach you only ignorance.
We're all caught up in circumstances, and we're all good and evil. When you're really hungry, for instance, you'll do anything to survive. I think the most evil thing - well, maybe that's too strong - but certainly a very evil thing is judgment, the sin of ignorance.
Why waste time learning, when ignorance is instantaneous?
Ignorance is an evil weed, which dictators may cultivate among their dupes, but which no democracy can afford among its citizens.
I have a concept of Naples that is not so much of a city, per se, but rather an ingredient of the human spirit that I detect in everyone, Neapolitan or not. The idea that 'Neapolitanism' and mass ignorance are somehow indissolubly linked is one that I am prepared to fight with all the strength I have.
Luciano De Crescenzo
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
The voice of the intelligence is drowned out by the roar of fear. It is ignored by the voice of desire. It is contradicted by the voice of shame. It is biased by hate and extinguished by anger. Most of all it is silenced by ignorance.
Karl A. Menninger
It has become almost a cliche to remark that nobody boasts of ignorance of literature, but it is socially acceptable to boast ignorance of science and proudly claim incompetence in mathematics.
Ignorance is bliss. I wish I still had some.
I am one of those scientists who feels that it is no longer enough just to get on and do science. We have to devote a significant proportion of our time and resources to defending it from deliberate attack from organised ignorance.
Where ignorance is bliss it's foolish to borrow your neighbor's newspaper.
The beginning of an acquaintance whether with persons or things is to get a definite outline of our ignorance.
Our ignorance of history causes us to slander our own times.
Ideas are only lethal if you suppress and don't discuss them. Ignorance is not bliss, it's stupid. Banning books shows you don't trust your kids to think and you don't trust yourself to be able to talk to them.
I'm a believer in 'Ignorance is bliss.'
Ignorance is not bliss - it is oblivion.
I really wish there was some big brother conspiracy theory. I just think it's the ignorance of trying to make a dollar. That's what the networks have done and will continue to do. If anyone doesn't think that this is about making money, then they're crazy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
