Ignoranceis not bliss. Ignorance is tragedy. Ignorance isdevastation. Ignorance creates lack. Ignorancecreates disease. Ignorance will shorten your life.Ignorance will empty your life and leave you withthe husks, nothing to account for. No, ignorance isnot bliss.Here’s another note to make: What you don’t knowwill hurt you. What you don’t know will tragicallyaffect your life. What you don’t know will leaveyour life empty. What you don’t know will leaveyou without a relationship. We’re all affected byknowledge, whether we know or whether we don’tknow. That’s why you’ve got to read the books.
