On Knowledge — Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, #2 from "10 Dumbest 2003 Quotes"

Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don't know we don't know.
