Honor of Knowledge, Disgrace of Ignorance

It is enough an honor for knowledge that even those who are not proficient in it claim it and are happy whenever they are addressed as knowledgeable.  And it is enough a condemnation for ignorance that even an ignorant person despises being called ignorant.

—’Alī b. Abī Ṭālib [d.40AH/661CE]
