Philosopher, Lover of Wisdom
Philosopher – a lover of wisdom:
Most people live in a world of relative ignorance. We are even comfortable with that ignorance, because it is all we know.
When we first start facing truth, the process may be frightening, and many people run back to their old lives. But if you continue to seek truth, you will eventually be able to handle it better.

Once you’ve tasted the truth, you won’t ever want to go back to being ignorant!
