Is man merely a mistake of Gods? Or God merely a mistake of man? --- Nietzsche
so true...nice quote!
Knowledge can be much more poisonous than food, and its bad effect can last a lifetime
Just like overeating causes illness, too much knowledge will make one sick and is not a good idea, i guess.
Interesting quote! Thought-provoking...I think knowledge in itself is benign; our capacity to handle knowledge and what we do with it (or not) can be dangerous.
psachno, i agree with what you said except i think knowledge is neutral rather than "benign".
Yes, I like your definition better.
