Ain’t this often so?

confusion info

I can recall a few moments in my life when I had enough information to “know it all.”  I note the great pain often associated with such knowledge — the distance from friends and family who don’t “get it”,  for example. We can think of Socrates or Einstein whose insights into their objects of study brought them a certain amount of humility.

Pure confusion can’t be a proper goal but maybe a certain amount serves us well during our great pursuits. (image from here, a fun site)
