Spurgeon's Illustration Collection
Wise men know their own ignorance and are ever ready to learn. Humility is the child of knowledge. Michael Angelo was found by the Cardinal Earnese walking in solitude amid the ruins of the Coliseum, and when he expressed his surprise, the great artist answered, 'I go yet to school that I may continue to learn.' Who among us can after this talk of finishing our education? We have need to learn of all around us. He must be very foolish who cannot tell us something; or more likely we must be more foolish not to be able to learn of him.
