In a century where the media publish endless stupidities, the cultured man is defined not by what he knows but what he does not know.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    En un siglo donde los medios de publicidad divulgan infinitas tonterías, el hombre culto no se define por lo que sabe sino por lo que ignora.

    Note: The word for “not to know” (ignorar) can also be translated as “to ignore.”
