Stupidity is knowing and seeing the truth, but still believing the lies. Because of many unusual things happening around us these days, it is time to know the basic differences between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance simply implies lack of awareness about something; while stupidity denotesy things but still be ignorant in some areas of knowledge.

I have learned that avoidable human misery is more often caused not so much

Stupidity combined with arrogance and a huge ego will get you a long way. Chris Lowe

 by stupidity as by ignorance, particularly ignorance about ourselves. Intelligent people know they are intelligent. They also know that one person cannot know all; hence a person is not stupid simply because he is ignorant of one thing or another. They know that, to another intelligent person, they will not appear stupid in asking for an explanation of what they do not know, and so their ignorance on any particular issue does not become an embarrassment.

Stupidity is infinitely more fascinating than intelligence. Intelligence has its limits while stupidity has none. Claude Chabrol

I have also learned that stupidity is much the same all the world over. A stupid person's ideas and feelings may confidently be inferred from those which prevail in the personís surrounding and not so with those whose opinions and feelings come from their own nature and faculties. I have also noticed that many of us always do the most intelligent thing after we have tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked.

We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. Nothing in the entire world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. Strange as it may seem, no amount of learning can cure stupidity, and formal education positively fortifies it.

To think that we can understand everything is such stupidity because our senses are so limited. We are so limited that to feel that we can understand the creation scientifically is a little bit naive. It's very childish. Alejandro Gonzalez
