I’d take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.”   —   Douglas Adams

(First off, a little confession.  I saw the name, Douglas Adams, and I thought:  Oh, the guy who draws/writes “Dilbert“!  Doh!  That’s Scott Adams.  This is an interesting quote, but I  sensed a tone of sarcasm here, and I saw conflict in the use of “awe”.  But likely, that’s due to my personal bias of the word “awe”.  I’ve always associated the word more with admiration and wonderment.  But, the word can swing all the way to fear and stupefaction.  Two words that are synonymous with ignorance in my book.  The best way to overcome fear is through understanding.  I don’t buy the excuse: “I just don’t like it”, when someone objects to the notion of being ignorant, or fearing something or someone.  At the very least we need to practice empathy.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
