Ignorant are conceited

Education should impart humility. Without humility, there will not be any progress in education and what has been acquired would be lost slowly.

Knowledge is an ocean. It is as deep as you go deeper in it. Hence, none can take pride in it. Pride in itself is not good – it is a passion that perverts the soul; moreover, pride of knowledge is more harmful than pride of any thing else because pride of knowledge hastens fall of Self.

This must always be remembered that knowledge is a pure thing and pride impure; therefore, one who knows pride, he cannot boast of knowledge.

One who takes as much pride in knowledge is that much ignorant. Enlightened men have said that childish or ignorant men only think of themselves as big; they are vainglorious.

- Sutrakritanga Sutra 1/11/2
