So that is how that works

I have always been fascinated by how things work or don’t work. I loved flipping through the encyclopedia as a child and seeing complex machines and systems broken down. Everything in the book would be laid out in steps or processes in plain English. The more I learned the more I wanted to learn and do and build. I wanted to know everything and I felt like I had learned a lot.

As I grew and grow I have realized and am reminded every day that I know nothing.

I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.

Socrates

Wisdom and knowledge are often used in a fashion that seems like the two are interchangeable however I don’t think that is the case. Knowledge is storing of information and wisdom is more what is done with the knowledge. Wisdom deals with knowledge and insight.

KNOWLEDGE IS KNOWING that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad

Brian O’Driscoll

No one should ever stop learning because, when faced with the infinite possibility of life we truly know what amounts to nothing. This lack of knowledge can be both frightening and exciting. Frightening because the unknown holds danger exciting because the unknown holds so much possibility. The sky is the limit When it comes to learning there truly is no limit.
