"Ignorance is bliss."

Ignorance, or a lack of knowledge, isn't usually viewed as a good thing. However, there may be situations when you're happier not knowing the truth. A common expression used to describe these situations is "ignorance is bliss."

Who wants to be viewed as a person with a lack of knowledge? Well, that's not the crux of the statement, as it is technically an idiom. Idioms are words or phrases that aren't meant to be taken literally. They make a striking point, but can't be interpreted as actual fact.
