--What one knows is always less than what one doesn't know.

--Therefore, one must place more importance on what one doesn't know than upon what one knows.

--But how can one place importance on what one doesn't know?

--First, and most tellingly, by being humble about what one knows.

--Second, by being skeptical about what anyone else claims to know.

--Third, by investing large amounts of one's time, energy, and resources into knowing more.
