There are two kinds of ignorance.
There’s the violent, prejudiced kind, born of received, unconsidered opinion, where the ignoramus is so benighted they don’t even know they don’t know anything.
And there’s the cheerful, modest kind that results from direct personal experience, from examining the universe carefully and in detail and coming to realise that, in the words of Thomas Edison, “We don’t know a millionth of one per cent about anything.”

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.
