Truth isn't only about knowledge... it's also about learning to accept your limitations and focus on your strengths. Don't take what society tells you as sacred words set in stone. It may just take a while for the rest of your culture to catch up with you. And that's ok.
Da Vinci's full quote: “Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind: Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses- especially learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else.”
