A Little Knowledge


A Little Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, Persons with imperfect and insufficient knowledge can do much harm to others. For example, a doctor with an insufficient knowledge can be very harmful to his patients. A novice driving a vehicle may put the lives of his passengers to an end. Persons with shallow knowledge are generally very boastful. The man with a little knowledge is like a frog in the well. He thinks that the whole world is only as wide as the well. It is not learning that is dangerous but the learner’s own pretensions that make his learning dangerous. As has been well said, ‘knowledge is proud that he knows much; wisdom is humble that he knows no more’. It is dangerous both for the person who has little knowledge and also for those who seek the advice of such a person.
