    Do You Know a Little, A Lot, Something, or Nothing?

      Considering that I haven't experience everything in this world I would say I know something.

    I know a little about a lot that really is only something about nothing.

    Oh yes. I always know what I know. Seems the problem is others don't quite follow ...

    But if you want a serious answer. I know an awful lot about child development. That is what I do. And a good bit about logistics. I know a little about portuguese (the language). I know a fair bit about string and how much fun a ball of it can be. I have a credible knowledge about Bengal cats - probably as much if not more than a lot of folk that breed them. And I know nothing about SEO, why people gossip and why I don't like flying.

    I know a lot about English history, English law - immigration, public law, and various minor areas.

    I know a bit about a collection of other things, and nothing about a vast array of things.

    The more I learn the more I forget and the less I know -- I think.

      Ha, Excellent. If the more you forget then the more you will remember after learning what you do not know, no?

      Reminds me of a poster up in the nurse's break room at a hospital I used to work in.

      "They tell you that when you get old you will lose your mind......

      What they don't tell you is that you won't miss it." lol

    oops, I just did steal it from Socrates.

    But do we realize how much we do not know?

      marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Most of us do not realize how much we do not know because most of us only focus on what we do know.

    I know alot about my culture and not enough about other peoples.
    I know a little about the American Civil War now ( I knew even less 2 mths ago).

    I dont like how the media reports mainly bad news,and seem to have this hypnotic affect on certain people.

    I wonder why people are afraid to show their feelings sometimes, and why in general there seems to be more anger today.
    As a human race collectively ,we are not so content with the simpler things in life any longer, and have developed this ideal of more is better , materials , achievements , status etc.

    I know how to make a great meal and make guests feel welcome.
    I know nothing about Communism,except that its not part of my Western Culture's democracy.
    Actually I know alot, and there is just as much I dont know about ! smile

      All is well as long as you urge to know what you are yet to know.

        But...dont you have days ,when you just dont want to learn anything new.

        1. marinealways24 profile image59
          marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Yes!!!! Then I think I know that I am working against what I am yet to know. So any momemt that I prevent from learning what I urge to know, I may never see because I am wasting time to learn more of what I do not know.

    I know quite a bit about world history, and an extensive amount about Polynesian history in particular.  The parts of Polynesian history that I find most fascinating is Tahitian and Hawaiian culture.  I am still enthralled by the history of mutiny on the Bounty, and have read several books on the subject.  Captain Cook and William Bligh were fascinating men, and I have read several accounts about them.

      The only scary thing is, before we die, we may never truly know what we urge to know. Yet, we will continue live with only what we know.

    Lisa HWposted 7 years ago

    I don't spend much time thinking about what I know or don't know.  I just go with what I know, keep learning, and do a pretty good job remembering what I've learned.  I spend most of my "brain energy" concerned with what I am, what my own actions/beliefs are, and thinking about the people I love.  These things will be my legacy.  I know enough to know that what any of us knows doesn't count for all that much.    hmm

    It tells me that you are young until you stop learning.
    He who do not read is not better than he who is blind. Who do not listen is not better than deaf. Regarding of talking I will stop here. Some people talk but never listen. Have you ever met one?

    1. marinealways24 profile image59
      marinealways24posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Yes!!! Talking to someone who claims to know everything, you will only learn what they think they know. You will also learn how they refuse to see what they do not know.

          No, quite the opposite. I have not enough education or money to earn our society's label of smart. I will settle for being dumb in my undying quest to know what I may never know.

    I know that there is a lot that I would like to know, and a lot of what I would like to know, I do not know exists. I know that a lot that I do know, escapes me , and what I know ,I don't know I know. I know that you know that I know that you understand this! but do I know , am not really sure if  I know this or not.

    Excellent Response from everyone and a lot of wise words. Thank You. I know that everyone that responded to this has a mind that will often run in circles. lol Then again, it may be just my mind, then again, I do not know. I do know that we are all in the same boat until we choose to buy a bigger boat. Then, we are still in a boat.

    A wise man knows that he really knows nothing.  I guess I'm a jack of many trades, but a master of probably none.
