21 thought-provoking quotes about ignorance

quotes about ignoranceTo be ignorant, one lacks education and knowledge. Therefore ignorance implies a lack of awareness.

Additionally, it means that we are unaware of information and facts.

Also, it means we lack an understanding and/or appreciation of other people and their ways.

It can also mean that we deliberately ignore or disregard what’s going on around us and the impact of our actions on other people and society.

It can also imply technical ignorance whereby we’re unaware of how something is done or should be done.

So today I offer you 21 thought-provoking quotes about ignorance to help you to reflect a little more on its significance and why we should avoid it.

Being ignorant reflects badly on us generally and it should never be seen as a badge of honour.

Ignorance goes together with stupidity, and that’s not something of which we can be proud.

The cure for ignorance is education and that’s a lifelong process.

You don’t have to go to college or university but you must educate yourself constantly, to hone your skills and avoid making stupid mistakes through ignorance.

Investing in your own education throughout life will pay the best dividends, of that, I can assure you.
