All of our wisdom is like naught —  for our greatest of sages cannot be regarded as anything other than a disciple of the disciples of former generations… Rather, we must recognize that our understanding is superficial, that our minds are extremely weak, that ignorance is widespread among us, that error is multiplying, and that the knowledge that we do possess is miniscule.”

Rabbi Moshe Chayim Luzzato, The Path of the Just, Ch. 22
