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),
Laërtius, Maxwell, de Montaigne, Pippard,
Shelley, Wheeler, and Ziman.

[The present quote list is a sequel to: (a)
"Eleven Quotes in Honor of Inertia" (Hake, 2006)
at <>], and (b)
"Twenty-eight Quotes Relevant to Overpopulation"
at the end of my post "L.A. Times Population
Report: Beyond 7 Billion - Fighting the Last
War?" (Hake, 2012) at <>].
