It is not so.

The matter of the fact is that, very much like old Socrates,
you are probably concealing your divine optimism and your faith
in human beings, out of modesty and care.

No need to conceal it too much among us, though.

Regards,  Carlos.

"There was a time when the acquirement of Divine Wisdom (Sapientia) required

the sacrifice and devotion of a man’s whole life. It depended on such
tings as the purity of the candidate’s motives; on his fearlessness and
independence of spirit; but now, to receive a patent for wisdom and
adeptship requires only unblushing impudence.” (1)

things are obviously much better now than they were then. Our impudence
would never even dream of blushing. In fact I don't think I even know how to.
