    a saying from an Arabian wise man

    hi guys,
    i tried my best to translate this saying, i hope my translation could convey the meaning correctly :) if not please correct it for me
    " When my knowledge increases, my knowledge of my unawareness increases " Imam Al-Shafe'i
    which means, when i learn more, i learn more about my unawareness.
    hopefully it make sense :)

    I think I have seen this translated before:
    I think it was " the more I learn, the more I realise how little I know"

    hope that helps!
