The Most Dangerous Person in the World

Anyone who isn’t embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn’t learning enough.

Alain de Botton

We’d all like to think that we’ve acquired enough knowledge to achieve success, especially those of us who’ve been in our industries for a minute. But time and again, experience teaches us (if we’re paying enough attention to notice) that we’re woefully deficient in our knowledge.

Why then, do so many otherwise intelligent people rail against learning?

The most dangerous person in the world is the one who thinks he already knows everything.
