So I'm trying to make a sentence and convey the meaning that ignorance is bliss but I learned that there were this many things I didn't know and then learned about the things I didn't know about but I'm just looking for how to say that I learned all the things that I didn't know in a concise way.

Basically what is it called when you learn that there is so many things you didn't know?

  • I don't know that we have a single phrase to express your feeling. It most likely will be said many ways, each wrapped in a favorite regional or familial saying. I like, "The older I get, the less I know." This roughly translates as - "The more things I learn, the more I realize how many things I don't know."

Hindsight is 20/20 is a phrase that means one has (after a situation) learned things which, had they been known at the time, would have led to different choices.

  • This just doesn't answer the question, which is not about regret....
