    “I examined the poets, and I look on them as people whose talent overawes both themselves and others, people who present themselves as wise men and are taken as such, when they are nothing of the sort.

    From poets, I moved to artists. No one was more ignorant about the arts than I; no one was more convinced that artists possessed really beautiful secrets. However, I noticed that their condition was no better than that of the poets and that both of them have the same misconceptions. Because the most skillful among them excel in their specialty, they look upon themselves as the wisest of men. In my eyes, this presumption completely tarnished their knowledge. As a result, putting myself in the place of the oracle and asking myself what I would prefer to be — what I was or what they were, to know what they have learned or to know that I know nothing — I replied to myself and to the god: I wish to remain who I am.

    We do not know — neither the sophists, nor the orators, nor the artists, nor I— what the True, the Good, and the Beautiful are. But there is this difference between us: although these people know nothing, they all believe they know something; whereas, I, if I know nothing, at least have no doubts about it. As a result, all this superiority in wisdom which the oracle has attributed to me reduces itself to the single point that I am strongly convinced that I am ignorant of what I do not know.”

    ~Socrates.

    This is such a narcissistic quote though. Do people really think they are so amazing, that it's worth for others to try and "break through their walls"? It's almost as if this quote says that other people should worship you, or whatever, with you acting all high-and-mighty with your "walls" up, while they have to put extra effort into trying to get through them.

    To someone living by these words below, and inevitably getting frustrated, because others don't try to "break down their walls", I'd say - pull your head out of your arse. That's my wisdom.

    It's not literal. It has a philosophical implication.
    There's nothing narcissistic about it. Craving for attention=/=narcissism by the way even if narcissism might include it.
    It's actually counter-narcissistic since breaking those walls would mean someone else being better than those who put the walls up which basically means competitiveness and daring to go beyond current potential/knowledge/you name it.
