    Re: Which one is correct?

    The standard misquotation of 'A little learning is a dangerous thing' (Alexander Pope) is

    'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing', so your #1 comes closest to that.


    Please note that a better title would have been A/The/Some little knowledge.

    One of my favorite quotes from Mark Twain is "It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."
