Some subscribers to Math-Teach might be interested in a recent post "Fourteen Quotes in Praise of Ignorance #2" [Hake (2013)].  The abstract reads:

ABSTRACT:  Stimulated by Stuart Firestein's (2012) "Ignorance: How It Drives Science" at <>, in this post I list "Fourteen Quotes in Praise of Ignorance." These quotes are listed in alphabetical order of the first letter of the author's name: Cicero, Disraeli, Dyson, Feynman, Firestein (3), Laėrtius, Maxwell, de Montaigne, Pippard, Shelley, Wheeler, and Ziman.
