My dear,

The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance; it is the illusion of knowledge.

That’s why the discoverer is always a child at mind. Someone who’s always astounded with the world and it’s workings. Someone who sees themselves as infinitely uneducated in an infinite world that’s waiting to teach them infinite things.

The most knowledgeable people have always been those who know themselves to be bottomless wells of cluelessness.

Falsely yours,
Daniel Joseph Boorstin
