Analysis and comments on I met a seer by Stephen Crane

Comment 4 of 4, added on October 6th, 2009 at 11:24 PM.

To open the book of wisdom is to realize how unlearned you are. To have a
great vast knowledge, and then to gave into the book that holds all. you
will realize how blind you are, how much you are unaware of. Sepere Vedere.
Learn to see. The more you learn, the more open your eyes get to the fact
that you know nothing but a small fraction of all that is and will be, and
that in knowing this you have opened your eyes to yet another page of the
book, and you will forever seek the knowledge that the book holds. to come
so fool hardily to the book, thinking that you know all there is to be
known, Will result in you coming to the realization that you know nothing.
And thus, are blind.

Ahhh, a poem telling how youth never knows as much as it thinks it does. I
find that to be quite true.
