Know it Not

     The older I get the more I realize how little I know and how much there is to know. This is another reason why I hate know it alls. They think that they know it all and I know that they cannot possibly . There is always something more to learn , another experience to gain knowledge from. As life progresses you realize that its a good thing you don't really have all of the answers as why people and things don't turn out the way one expects them to . If you are lucky you also learn how to keep your mouth shut. There is a good reason for  siyag l'chachmah shtikah.

Such an attitude can be paralyzing. The more you learn the more you realize how much there is to learn but then it might eventually occur to you that you'll never learn more than an infintessimal fraction of what knowledge is out there so you get frustrated since you'll never know it all or even a significant part of it which means you decide "Why bother?" and stop learning all together since, in the end, you didn't know much anyway.

I hear you, but I look at it more like there is always more knowledge to acquire and therefore life is never boring.
