According to wikipedia this was attributed to the philosopher Socrates and the sense was that the only real wisdom is knowing you know nothing

To me it’s a beautiful concept used by teachers to make their pupils understand that the only way they can learn something is accepting they know nothing about it.

Doing so, their minds can fully absorb any information thrown at them and also most important that they pay attention to every little detail their they are entrusted with.

The concept of knowing nothing else than the fact that you do not know anything may be very hard to grasp when first heard so I’ll tell you a little secret a friend of mine shared with me a few years ago. Think of what this concept makes you feel or what do you understand when you hear it.

I guarantee that when you understand this concept you’ll get a big smile on your face.

Till next time, when in doubt…smile!
