The modesty of wisdom

The tale is told of how Socrates was confronted by a citizen of Athens who posed a question for him. “Socrates,” the man asked, “Why does the Oracle at Delphi describe you as the wisest man in the world?”

The answer he got was something of a surprise : “I can only think that it is because I know nothing.” Then Socrates added, “But I have opinions on nearly everything.” > more.
