How little

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
Socrates (469 BC – 399 BC) was a Greek philosopher. He is mainly known through the writings of his students Plato and Xenophon.


  1. This quote is so true, the older I get the more I realize that the less I understand and know. Yet I have more clarity on how I want to live my life :)
