Wisdom consists in knowing that you know nothing (Socrates, 4th century B.C. classical Greek philosopher)

They say that knowledge is increasing exponentially today. That is, we’re learning more and more all the time—so much so that we can’t begin to keep up with it all. Yet, the ancient philosopher warns that we must recognize that in spite of all we may know, there’s much more that we don’t yet know. Wisdom requires a humble spirit of continual learning.

Let the wise listen and add to their learning. . . . Instruct the wise and they will be wiser still; teach the righteous and they will add to their learning. (Proverbs 1:5; 9:9).6
