12-1-10 The Wisest Person

12-1-10 The Wisest Person

The goddess at Delphi in Greece was widely respected for her prophecies.One day some one asked her,"Who is the wisest and the most learned person in Greece at this time ?"
The goddess said,"Socrates."
Hearing it some people went to Socrates and said to him,"The goddess has proclaimed that you are the wisest and the most learned person in Greece."
Socrates said,"It is wrong. I am not learned, I am ignorant,though I am desirous of getting knowledge."
Hearing it the people went back to the goddess and said"You have proclaimed Scorates to be the wisest and the most learned person but he refuses to be so and says that he is ignorant."
The goddess said,"Only because of it,he is the wisest and the most learned person because in spite of being a learned person,he has no arrogance of his wisdom and knowledge."
Moral :- A learned person is never arrogant of his knowledge and wisdom.
