I don’t know. There, I admit it. But If I did know then I’d be aware of what I didn’t know. Isn’t that called knowledge? I don’t know.
If I Knew
If I knew more then I might start to question how much I think I know. Questions might arise:
- “Do I know enough?”
- “What if I don’t know enough?”
- “How would I know?”
Here’s what bakes my bean: If I can’t know how much I know then how can I know how little I know? Does it take one to know one. I’m not sure that’s relevant?
I know one thing, I don’t want to be obsessed about not knowing enough. Currently, I have no real sense of how little I know. So there’s no reason to get my noodle in a knot.
Knowledge Is Odd
Knowledge is an odd commodity. We went to school to know stuff. Then we finished school. I guess we learned all we needed to know. But I’ve been out of school for a while now and there still seems to be a need to learn more. What is it I need to know more about? I don’t know.
Here are some “knowing” statements:
- How could I know?
- Do you know?
- What do I know?
- You’re such a know it all.
- You know better!
- Know this!
- You know what I mean?
- You know what to do.
- Didn’t you know?
- You have such a head for knowing.
Plato said, “Courage is knowing what not to fear.” If that’s true, then is cowardice knowing what to fear? Thanks Plato for clearing that up.
Socrates said, “The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.” How did he know that? That doesn’t make sense. Way to go Socrates, you knocked that one out of the park.
Warren Buffet said, “Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing.” That means I live with great risk most of the time. I knew it.
Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”
Now that’s worth knowing.
