Quote of the Week

I’m going to start trying to share quotes from my reading of the past week as my quote of the week, because I think it’ll be interesting. This week’s quote comes from my most recently read (and final!) Shakespeare play:

The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.
– William Shakespeare, As You Like It

This reminded me a lot of that famous quote from Socrates: “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” I love both quotes, and I think they have a great message. Because the smarter you are, the more you realize just how little about the world you know. But I’ve also encountered a lot of ignorant people who think they know everything. I think it shows intelligence to realize how much you have left to learn.

What do you think?


What’s your favorite quote from Shakespeare? I definitely have a few that I really love, and I want to hear yours!
