the wise man is not so wise

Statement: The wisest person is the person who admits he knows nothing.

I disagree with this statement because the wisest person would know that he does know something. How can you even admit to knowing nothing if you know nothing? If you knew nothing, that would mean you could not speak or even comprehend thought because you do not know how. It is not possible for someone to know absolutely nothing due to the nature of knowing something. Even seeing a picture allows you to know that there is a certain colour in front of you, a certain shape, and even a certain pattern. The person who claims to be a person who knows nothing is either overly modest or pretending to be modest. Truly believing that you know nothing is not wise, but foolish because you misinterpret fundamental laws of knowing that society has established.
