Erik, I think you’d be interested in the Socratic Paradox: “I know that I know nothing.”

One famous Shakespeare quote says that “a fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.

This article made me think about the gift of being a beginner and a fool. I wrote about it a while back here.

Great article, Erik!
